Poulomi Basu

Imagination is pictures, seeing with your eyes closed just like you see when they are open, you have to do it both ways.
Look outside and notice all you can, and look inside and remember all you can. The really wise man knows how to choose, what to see and what to remember I guess. Winston ‘Solomon’ Odyele

Poulomi Basu is photographer based in New Delhi, India working across Asia.

She majored in Sociology, before completing her Masters in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication graduating with a Distinction. Her work focuses on under-reported contemporary issues where gender and the formation of identity are often defining characteristics. She is interested in the lives of ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary circumstance; in those individuals and groups who quietly challenge the prevailing orthodoxies of the world in which they live.

Poulomi is part of the VII Photo Agency Mentor Program.
