Delhi-based Ashish Sahoo studied sculpture at the Kala Bhavan, Visva Bharati University, Shantiniketan, India. After completing his B.F.A, he moved to New Delhi for his M.F.A (College Of Art) where he started experimenting with the materials, starting from video to sound. His works are mostly interactive as he likes his viewer to be constant participants in his work.
Ashish was born into a filmmaker’s family in Orissa, surrounded by celluloid cans and chemicals as he was growing up. After pursuing a B.F.A. in sculpture from Shantiniketan where he was introduced to the history of art and photography, he began experimenting with various early photography techniques. He researched one of the mid-18th-century processes of photography called wet plate collodion glass Negatives. He shoots only film and alternate processes.
His recent projects have attempted a crossover between photography, art, and collaboration, with a strong contextual reference to contemporary urban narrative and the politics surrounding it.
He Co-Founded Maze Collective Studio, a space for young photographers to learn and practice Photography and its various techniques.
