“The landscape around me was transformed into a non-object, often drawing a wide range of associations with aerial, interplanetary and lunar landscapes and thus encouraging the viewer to look at Antarctica, abstracted from its vast landscape and sparking conversation about preserving this last untouched continent's natural beauty. ” — Ashok Sinha
Ashok Sinha (b. 1975) is a New York-based photographer whose large scale landscape photographs picture uncommon perspectives. He often delegates the horizon in the bottommost third of the image or removes it entirely while photographing directly over the edge of a icebreaker ship or through the window of a transcontinental flight. While his interest in the beauty of the natural world endows a unique attention to the unnoticed, his commercial career as an architectural photographer informs bodies of work that focus on the built environment. His photographs have been exhibited at The Museum of the City of New York, the International Center of Photography, and The Royal Photographic Society. Sinha is also the founder of Cartwheel Initiative, a nonprofit that works with displaced and refugee youth, which empowers these young people to tell their stories through the use of photography and multimedia.
