Who is Yannick Cormier ?
Yannick Cormier was born in 1975 in France. He worked at Studio Astre in Paris while also pursuing photography education at CIFAP in the early 2000’s. After years of working as an assistant for Patrick Swirc, William Klein and for magazines such as Vogue, Flair, Elle, Vanity Fair, he began his career as a documentary photographer. Between 2003 and 2005 he teamed up with the agency WostokPress and was sent to India as a correspondent. During those years, he fell in love with all that is India and has since settled in the coastal city of Chennai.
In 2007 he founded the agency Trikaya Photos in India, to showcase emerging photographers working on sensitive issues. Since 2009, he has been working on the conflict in the region of Kashmir, the problem of drugs addiction in Kolkata and the marginalized transsexual community across India. His photography is an aesthetic testament of traditions that are endangered in modern India. These images have been published in various international publications such as OjodePez, Courrier International, Libération, The Sunday Guardian, Le Nouvel Observateur, The Hindu, CNN, etc., and exhibited in India and abroad.
About the Indian Photography Festival
Indian Photography Festival (IPF) is a not-for-profit initiative by the Light Craft Foundation along with the Govt. of Telangana.

The festival aims at congregating the greatest minds in the field of photography and showcasing the works of amateur & seasoned photographers from all across the world, and at the same time establishing a global platform for learning through various events.
The IPF turns the city of Hyderabad into a living cross-section of cutting edge photography thereby creating a platform for the professional and aspiring photographers, the photography lovers and the public where the IPF strives to promote the art of photography at the same time addressing the social issues through the medium of photography. IPF is a citywide, highly participatory event that explodes in art and culture venues, on the streets and in communities.
