UZMA MOHSIN uses photography to unravel narratives of people, places and their histories. Her image-making process involves experimenting with abstraction and metaphoric expression to build a conversation around the idea of belonging.
Her works have been exhibited at Galerie Romain Rolland, Alliance Française de Delhi, New Delhi (‘The Surface of Things: Photography in Process’, 2016); at the Chatterjee & Lal Gallery, Mumbai ('Zones of Privacy', 2016); at the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, the Japan Foundation, Delhi and Yokahama Civic Gallery, Japan ('Tales & Fables from India & Japan: Animation, Film, Photography', 2015) and at the Forum Schlossplatz, Aarau, Switzerland (‘Asmara. Fluchtpunkt Eritrea’, 2014).
She was an artist-in-residence at the Working Group Gästeatelier Krone, Aarau, Switzerland in 2011 and at the Centre for Alternative Photography, Goa supported by India Foundation for the Arts in 2012. In 2010, she assisted Martine Franck (Magnum) on a book project, 'Women Changing India' (BNP Paribas and Zubaan Publication).
A graduate from the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, she is based in New Delhi.
