A British Asian female photographer, Suki Dhanda began her photographic career after receiving a Prince’s Trust loan and gaining a Higher National Diploma in Photography at Plymouth College of Art and Design. A regular contributor to publications such as The Observer, Suki specialises in portraits of people in their environments, citing emotion, realism and identity as key elements of her work. She has produced a number of social documentary photo stories based around issues of gender and culture within Asian communities living in Britain and the USA. Her images of young British Asian females emerging from their own communities in London’s East End into the broader British landscape were included in the group exhibition 000ZEROZEROZERO at the Whitechapel Gallery, London (1999) and the Station Gallery, Frankfurt (2000).
