#9 Prarthna Singh

Prarthna Singh's work explores female identity in contemporary India, within the intersection of gender and nation. Particularly drawn to stories that stand at the conflux of radical vulnerability and power; her images highlight India’s transition and contrast while exploring a dual dichotomy between feminine identity and strength. These female narratives are constructed within India’s own traditions, poised between fragility and abundance. After completing her BFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design, Prarthna lived and worked in New York. Returning to India was a deliberate decision; she is currently based out of Bombay.

Prarthna Singh's talks to Gem Fletcher about the significance of location and it’s direct impact on opportunity. They discuss how to thrive outside the main commissioning hubs.
