Poulomi Basu

Poulomi Basu is an Indian transmedia artist, photographer and activist. Widely published and exhibited, her work explores the way in which the formation of identity becomes entwined with geopolitics, revealing the hidden power structures buried deep within our societies. In 2018 the Centralia work was recognised through the award of the Photographic Museum of Humanity Grant Main Prize. A Magnum Foundation Social Justice Fellow and grantee, Poulomi is known for advocating the rights of women through her work and in 2019 Amnesty International noted her as an important and brilliant ‘human rights activist’. She also featured on ‘The Conversation’ (BBC World Service) alongside Lynsey Addario as one of the most significant contemporary war photographers. Her immersive VR films, Blood Speaks, are collected and distributed by the Tribeca Film Institute.
