Great Photos of a Classical Indian Dance-Drama by Prithvi Chandra

Prithvi Chandra, a photographer from Chennai, India, loves the power of visuals. It’s no surprise, then, that he’s attracted to Kathakali, a stylized classical dance-drama from the South of India. In his photo journal of Kathakali, Prithvi documents the dancers from their elaborate make-up process to the intricate dance itself. Even if the story represented by the dance is hard follow, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the tradition, it’s easy to appreciate the visual spectacle of Kathakali.
