PhotoConcierge Celebrates World Photography Day with “Marina Makkal”

The series provides a never before seen insight into the stories of the people whose lives revolve around this hotspot.

A team of PhotoConcierge photographers will photograph and document stories of the fisherman as they begin to arrive at the shore after their early morning catch. The team will also capture candid images of vendors as they go about their daily lives. The images will be put up for display near the Nochi Kuppam fish market on Marina beach, Chennai at 4 PM on Saturday,19th August.
