Vikram is currently showing at The National Portrait Gallery - selected for the Taylor Wessing photographic Portrait Prize 2019.
The strong narrative themes visible in the pictures of Vikram Kushwah are inspired by the somewhat uncanny nature of dreams and memory, distorting facts and instilling in them romantic visions and surrealist ideas. Vikram studied fashion design after high school which helped him chance upon the medium of photography. After working as an assistant photographer in Mumbai for a year, he studied photography in the quaint town of Ooty in south India before moving to London for a PG diploma at London College of Communication and subsequently, an MA degree in Photography at UCA, Rochester, UK.
Vikram’s work regularly appears in publications like Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar India, with Italian Vogue profiling him in their ‘New Talents’ section. His collector base spans the USA, Europe, Britain, Asia and Australia.
