About me

My practice examines man’s inability to see through illusions stemming from trauma and isolation. The recent events of COVID-19 have caused many changes to our lifestyles. The move to stay at home has become a part of us. These adjustments have taken their toll on how we work and how we assess our works. The lockdown measures have had a severe effect in countries with larger migrant populations such as India. Their issues and problems have not been taken into account by the ruling governments. My final work is an ode to their (and my) circumstantial nomadic existence which has been completely challenged during these strange times. My practice before coming to London was docu-film. This has fundamentally changed in the last couple of months through the careful study of works by Saul Leiter, Jeff Wall, Steve McQueen, and Wolfgang Tillmans. The conflict began to emerge between the mediums of Film and Photography that made me question my approach towards documenting present-day scenarios through the lens of photography. This has meant bringing in a multidisciplinary approach towards photography through the mediums of installation, performance, sound, and video installation. email:
