Tiruvannamalai, in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu, is a small town of 144,000-odd people with a strange taste in architecture. The houses here are painted in a bizarre mismatch of bright colors with outer facades decorated with asymmetrical shapes. When French photographer Vincent Leroux visited Tiruvannamalai, he found an astonishing resemblance in the town’s architecture with an old Italian art movement called Memphis, founded by the Italian architect Ettore Sottsass in 1980 in response to ambient minimalism and functionalism. Vincent started photographing these creations and “began to look for systematically, identifying them as nuggets amid the confusion of Indian cities, their suburbs or even the countryside.”
