Ashima Narain

India

Ashima visually explores the complex interplay between people, their environment and the impact of education on this relationship.

Ashima spends much of her field time in remote parts of India exploring the relationship of communities with their environment and education structures provided. Ashima is a freelance photographer and filmmaker, represented by National Geographic Image Collection and the former photo editor for National Geographic Traveller India. In 2017, Time included her on a list of 34 women photographers from around the world to follow. Over the span of 20 years, she has worked on a diverse range of subjects: from wading through mudflats to shoot flamingos for her award-winning Discovery Channel documentary, climbing sail masts mid-sea for National Geographic Traveller, and driving vintage cars across India for Cartier. She has twice been nominated for a Green Oscar; her work has been published in National Geographic Traveller India, GEO France, ProPublica, Foreign Policy, Die Ziet, Vanity Fair; and been part of Disney’s photography campaign exhibited at the United Nation’s Headquarters.
