Home | Meet the best Indian editorial photographers
The new wave of Indian editorial photography is fresh, real and changing the norm in all the right ways.
A far cry from super photoshopped Bollywood females and overly masculine male pin-ups, these photographers bring something new, less commercial, more real, but driven by a great sense of style.
This is our pick of the best Indian editorial, fashion and portrait photographers, those willing to change the conventional stereotypes and forge a new way of seeing. All five have a clear, strong message, and a defined view of the world and people they see before them.
We present 5 of the best editorial photographers practising in India right now.
Sikka is, without doubt, one of Indias finest photographers. Each photograph is deep, meaningful and tells a story. His stories are thoughtful, atmospheric and beautiful, whether the subject is landscape or portrait.
Although once thought of as a fashion photographer, he now spends more time working in challenging locations photographing people and landscapes, or pursuing personal projects.
His Time magazine assignments see him take on some remote and difficult locations, from Bhutan to Tibet, all of which he meets with a sense of perception many photographers fail to manage.
Bharat has published several books and exhibits internationally.
As often comes with self-taught photographers, there is an emphasis on the subject and an acceptance to try new things and experiment with the medium. We love the rawness of his work, it is sincere and compositionally assertive.
Living and working in New Delhi, Ashish specialises in portrait and fashion.
