. Born the son of a school teacher in rural India, Vikram’s parents worked extremely hard to change the course of his life by providing him with a different kind of education and therefore life trajectory. In this conversation we discuss his memories and reflections and how his story has influenced his work. Extraordinary success over the last couple of years has seen Vikram win the Portrait of Britain Award 2018 and 2019 and a beautiful symmetry brings Vikram’s work to The National Portrait Gallery with his series “The Education I Never Had” – which was selected for the Taylor Wessing photographic portrait prize. Vikram Kushwah’s story is inspiring and interesting – I hope you enjoy it.. (excuse the ambient noise – especially at the start – recordings will be clearer moving forward
) with thanks to Vikram for taking my photograph – which is the cover for this podcast episode.
