Based in New Delhi, India, Prarthana Modi studied photography at Central St. Martins School of Art & Design and The School of Black & White Photography, London.
She captures all her images in black & white, shoots on film only, is a creative photographer, and sells her images as limited edition, archival prints.
The choice of black & white is because Prarthana likes to see the starkness of the situation, in the image - colours distract her from this.
She shoots by instinct; don’t dabble with different types of equipment and lenses and abhors using the flash.
She has exhibited her works in solo & group exhibitions in India as well as London, Paris, Shanghai, Amsterdam, USA & UK.
