About

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, Singh lived and worked in New York. Returning to India was a deliberate decision, she is currently based out of Bombay.

Working across digital, film and video, Singh's images have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, FT Weekend, Monocle, The Sunday Guardian, Wallpaper City Guide, Architectural Digest and CNN. Her clients include Nike, Airbnb, Wellcome Trust, Tata, Old Spice, Indigo Airlines, and Levis. Her book Sār: The Essence Of Indian Design was published by Phaidon press.
