Photographer in India creates custom face masks for people during COVID-19 lockdown

A digital photographer in south India designed custom protective masks to counter COVID-19 that can also feature people's faces. Binesh G Paul, 38, lives in Ettumanoor in Kottayam, Kerala, and operates a photography shop. He says it takes 20 minutes to print the photo on the face, with the cost for one mask is ₹60 a piece (£0.65). He says this type of mask will make it easy for people to recognise each other. Talking about the process he said: "After clicking the photo I carry out sublimation printing and transfer the image to a particular paper. "The photo will later be enlarged and superimposed on the cloth mask."
