photo by: Ozzie Hoppe

I’m a photographer and videographer from Mumbai, the city where I grew up. I spent four years working as a staff photojournalist at Gulf News based in the UAE following which I moved back to India in 2012 to continue working independently. My personal work focuses on stories about women, the environment and indigenous communities. Besides English, I speak Hindi, Marathi and Konkani and I’m a new student of Spanish. I was an International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) grantee in 2016. My work has been exhibited in India, United Arab Emirates, France and Indonesia.
