Describing the collection, the organisers wrote, “Tamil Nadu is a land of endless stories. With all the diverse people, food, architecture, landscapes, and cultural trails it has, exploring Tamil Nadu through pictures is a great way to reflect its richness.”
“This exhibition is a collective of their [children’s] photographs that portrays Tamil Nadu and its stories through their lenses. The unfiltered vision of the students, and the endless stories of Tamil Nadu, come together and hope to strike a compelling narrative with the viewer,” the organisers added.
It is worth noting that the iPhone 13 Mini – the phone that these students have used to capture the culture of their state – is quite a compact device. It comes with a 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR display and it is powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic chipset. It has a 12MP wide-angle sensor + 12MP ultra wide rear camera setup and a 12MP front camera. It starts at Rs 69,990 for the 129GB variant and it goes all the way up to Rs 99,990 for the 512GB variant.
