Prarthna’s work is concerned with India’s transitional nature; that of contrast, fragility and abundance. Her images have a recognisable language, revealing the human condition and capturing design through minimal intervention. Observing the banality of everyday, she often photographs subjects in the context of modern India; people appear in their natural environment speaking certain truths and raising questions of a larger narrative. She was recently commissioned to do the photography for her first book, Sār: The Essence Of Indian Design published by Phaidon press. Previously based in New York, she currently resides in Mumbai, India.
