Bharat Sikka

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Bharat Sikka is a photographer who has spent his career trying to visually express one of the most visually expressive parts of the world – India and South East Asia. He flits skillfully from documentary to editorial projects, but it’s his take on fashion photography that’s caught our eye. Staged not in a studio but on location in villages, markets and local homes, Sikka’s images embrace the inherent juxtaposition of opulent fashion fantasy in the midst of everyday Indian life. And while we know it’s the clothing that are on show, it’s Sikka’s homeland which often takes center stage.
