PondyPHOTO, a biennale festival initiated by Exposure in South-India, is a platform where art and education attempt to break existing social barriers, by presenting visually impactful photography-oriented events focused on today’s social and environmental issues in public spaces. In a group of five (Paulina Porten, Lisa Rinaldi, Nir Halali, Roni Shalev and Madeleine Meixner) we have developed a visual language and brand concept. In close cooperation with the director Kasha Vande we evaluated the “Place” and the “Photography” as the key-aspects of the festival and the following task: “On how to bring two worlds together that emerge into something new.” In 2019 Lisa Rinaldi and Paulina Porten started designing the book “PondyPHOTO” which is a Retrospective of the Indian Photography Festival initiated 2014 and 2016.
