PondyPHOTO 2014, the first edition of the festival, was held in March 2014, to international acclaim, at the Old Distillery on the Beach Road.
30 International Photographers
“The PondyART show at the Old Distillery is probably one of the most ambitions and wonderful initiatives that I have ever been part of. The use of the location, the display in scale and size with all the added collateral events has made this one of the most courageous, experimental and important happenings to engage the public in recent times. It will be a difficult bench mark for others in bigger cities to match up to in years to come.”
-Pablo Bartholomew, Padma Shri Award Winning Photographer
As a result of the international interest in this project, PondyART received an invitation by the Indo-American Arts Council to bring “Tribals of the Indian Sub Continent” to New York, USA in Summer 2016.
