Dayanita Singh

A visual artist who introduces herself as an “image maker”, a term she selectively uses for herself instead of a photographer. Singh says, “Instagram is something that tries to get photographers to understand that it is your voice. This is what is going to change photography: when we stop doing things as photographers.” Unlike her rather dense artistic practice that plays out more in the archival format, her Instagram is light hearted – a flower or her long affair with furniture pictured at peculiar angles, texts at times and circle of people in the others.
