You Will Live In This World As A Daughter (2017-2018)
Marking the 70th anniversary of the partition of India from the UK, the British Council’s Reimagine India is a cultural exchange programme investing in creative collaborations between art and cultural organisations in England and in India.
With an award from the Arts Council, Creative Black Country and Multistory with support from the Nazar Foundation and Delhi Photo Festival commissioned 4 photographers (Uzma Mohsin, Andrea Fernandes, Jennifer Pattison and myself) to make a project about women in the Black Country and the Punjab.
This projects marks the first time that I have made a project with other people since 2011, which was then a fictional series. I chose to look at how it is being a daughter of the Punjab and made a series of photographs that move between hiding and revealing and question the visibility of girls, whilst also celebrating them.
Girl Gaze: Journeys Through the Punjab & the Black Country, UK brings together my project and the work of the other 3 commissioned photographers and was first shown at Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi in Chandigarh from 10th to 18th March 2018.
Girlz Gaze is due to premiere in the UK in May 2019 at Blast! Festival.
(A big thanks to all the women and girls involved in the project as well as my wonderful producer/translator Deepika Sharma and everyone at the organisations who commissioned the project - particularly Iona Fergusson, Parminder Dosanjh and Emma Chetcuti).
I am one of thirteen photographers involved in All Change, which is a collaborative project documenting areas around the London Underground's final stops.
From January to October 2018 I made a project about women and minorities in Watford (one of the ends of the Metropolitan line).
I am 1 of 209 UK based female artists who photographed a female MP to mark the centenary of the first vote for women in the UK, as part of 209 Women.
I photographed Vicky Foxcroft, Labour MP for Lewisham Deptford.
The collection of portraits is currently on show at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool until 14th April 2019.
