Children of the Tsunami

My friend Tom Pietrasik has spent a lot of time through 2005 and 2006 photographing children orphaned by the tsunami in Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu. (I visited this orphanage last year).

Some 35 or 40 of those images are now a solo exhibition in Chennai, called Children of the Tsunami. The exhibition is at the Forum Gallery, 57, 5th Street, Padmanabha Nagar, Adyar. (More on this page from the British Council).

Mornings this week, Tom is speaking about the children and his photography to groups of schoolkids.

Be there or be elsewhere. I plan to be there on Thursday or Friday or both.

PS: Tom took this shot.

The exhibition sounds good and it would have been nice to see you... but can't make it. Will mail you in a bit. (Thanks to GPRS I can do that).
