“I wanted to document a view of the world and put the scale of our communities in perspective. We often tend to lose ourselves in the world surrounding us and fail to realize that civilization is limiting even at its best. ” — Ashok Sinha
Ashok Sinha (b. 1975) was born in Calcutta, India. Since 2009, he has worked as a professional photographer in New York City. Interested in portraits, travel, and architecture, Sinha has voyaged to over forty countries photographing remote tribes, vast landscapes, and local culture. Capturing a distinct sense of place is a recurring theme throughout his work, through a portrait of a person in their home or place of work, or images of the built environment. His photographs have been published by numerous publications including National Geographic, The New York Times, and Interior Design Magazine while his fine art photography has been collected and exhibited in galleries in the United States and abroad. In 2011, he founded Cartwheel Initiative, a nonprofit organization that uses photography and creative media to help young people build bridges within their communities and across ethnic and social divisions.
