Sheetal Mallar is a contemporary Indian photographer. In her work, she has focused on the delicate, unspoken relationships that bind people to places, and on the layers of active and latent signals by which individuals signal their identity and aspirations. She has developed extended portraiture of various urban subcultures and professional groups, exploring the tension between the individual personality and the collective context. Several of her ongoing projects engage with the culture, topography and narratives of popular Indian cinema. Mallar’s photographic work has appeared in Architectural Digest, Verve, Motherland and Invisible Photographer Asia, among other publications and platforms. It has been exhibited in Goa Photo and the Terra di Cinema Festival, Sicily. Art Musings presented her first solo exhibition Transients in 2020. Other exhibitions include the Neighbourhood series in 2021 – Creatures of Passage and The Diary. The artist lives and works in Mumbai.
