Tanya Bindra
Photographer

Tanya Kaur Bindra is an independent photojournalist and filmmaker based between West Africa and South Asia. She has spent the past four years documenting conflict and post-conflict news seeking to make images that speak to our subjectivities and resistances as individuals, even while being shaped by the larger, politicized forces around us.

She attended the Eddie Adams Workshop XXVIII, the New York Times Portfolio Review in 2014 and was nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass in 2015. Tanya has been trained in battlefield medical response after undergoing a course by RISC (Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues). She has also taken a hostile environment course, supported by the Rory Peck Trust and the Forum Freelance Fund.

Tanya has contributed to outlets such as the New York Times, Newsweek, Le Monde, VICE, Time Magazine, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. She has filed regularly to the Associated Press and European Pressphoto Agency and has also partnered on humanitarian advocacy campaigns with UNICEF, Médecins Sans Frontières and others.

    International
    When photographer Adraint Bereal graduated from the University of Texas, he self-published an impressive volume of portraits, personal statements, and interviews that explored UT’s campus culture and offered an intimate look at the lives of Black students matriculating within a majority white space. Bereal’s work was inspired by his first photo exhibition at the George Washington Carver Museum in Austin, entitled 1.7, that unearthed the experiences of the 925 Black men that made up just 1.7% of UT’s total 52,000 student body.

  • Emily Ferguson: It Girl.
    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA
    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared.
