Bio -

Vikram Kushwah is an India born photography artist based in England. He spent his formative years in boarding school in the hills of northern India. Vikram moved to London in 2008 for a PG diploma in photography at the London College of Communication before completing an MA in Photography at the University for the Creative Arts, Rochester, in 2010. He has since been practicing in the UK and India between fashion, art, and portrait photography. He was shortlisted by the National Portrait Gallery, London, for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2019. He was winner of Portrait of Humanity 2023, and Portrait of Britain 2018 and 2019 (awarded by the British Journal of Photography). Most recently, in 2023-24, he collaborated with Coca-Cola for their latest blockbuster ad-campaign 'Masterpiece'. He is a regular contributor to Vogue magazine, and has worked for and been published in The Guardian, The Financial Times, and The Telegraph, among others. His photographs are part of private and corporate art collections across the UK, Europe, North America and Asia.

Statement -

By telling stories of others through photography, Kushwah informs himself of himself. He is primarily interested in a connection with other beings, in their joys and sufferings, in what connects us all and makes us part of the whole, part of a cosmic dance. The stories are all subtle tellings of sentient experience. Some are born out of chance encounters and some from family, the immediate community, and the natural surroundings. He tells these stories without opinion or judgement - the practice of shedding the ego - with as much care as tenderness. There is no identification with good or bad, better or worse, shoulds or shouldn’ts, rather there’s an appreciation of and compassion for things exactly as they are, each a different predicament from the other. His practice is mostly a meditation in love, which leads him on a path to knowing himself. And the photographs are just mementos.
