We are Maddyland. A visual arts studio. We work on photography and film projects in portraiture/human interest, fashion and advertising. We are driven by a passion to create images that are filled with beauty, atmosphere and magic realism. Images and films that would become a portal to another world that exists within ourselves, deep inside our conscious. 

This place is built on magic, wonder and free will. We are here, all of us, fellow travellers, to make joy. To inspire ourselves so that we become the best version of ourselves. Simple. In this journey, we are able to connect with others who want to create the same kind of magic. We search for them. We vibe. We create. We feel lighter. Simple.

----

We want to work with people and brands that are interested in exploring this parallel world.

Hello!

My name is Madhavan Palanisamy. I am a photographer, filmmaker, and artist based in Chennai, India. My friends call me Maddy.

I took a while to get here. I studied biochemistry, then management, worked in several advertising agencies before looking into the view-finder of the camera to discover this beautiful future. This journey has a great influence on me.

I am drawn to projects that have a heroic quality and an opportunity to present it with beauty and magic realism. I look for lyricism, rawness and nostalgia.

I do projects in portraiture and fashion; for me they are both very similar as I am always trying to find an image that would become a bridge to walk into another world.

I often think about where we come from, our connectedness, the lessons we learn and the balance that we can find when we open our hearts. These thoughts and ideas inform my conceptual work.

the world is full of magic and wonder. first, it floats on thin or no air. it draws light from a big ball of fire to make life work, plants grow, humans live and work. our bodies can dance, write poems, create babies. and ideas float like invisible waves ready to offer itself to whomever can tune into it. everything is a miracle.

photography, films (and any kind of art) offers opportunities that prove this magic. to create a visual interface that is far away from the reality we observe and close to the magic our souls know. thats why an image carries with it the knowledge of a million eyes that have seen something similar. thats why art makes sense. photography makes sense. cause it deals with the visual history that your cells know but your eyes have forgotten. the images i love trigger these emotions in me.
