INSPIRE MADRAS at the Madras Square
Inspire Madras is a collective effort by a group of experienced Photographers to enthuse photographers and visual artists in Chennai. Madras Square is seen as a melting pot for those interested in improving their knowledge and practice or willing to share their experiences in the field. Our skill set includes a wide gamut of photographic technologies and we would love to assist aspiring artists who walk into our vibrant space encouraging them to leave with more information, confidence and spirit.

We are equipped with a state of the art Print studio featuring current generation Epson Printers, a daylight photographic studio, a gallery space, and a fully functional classroom. Other activities we conduct to inspire artists are periodical presentations/shows/lecture demos/talks with presentations.
