It’s one of those quirks of life that while Richa’s formal education is in business administration, she is a self-taught photographer. And what started off as a casual hobbysoon became an addiction. Fuelled by her various travels across India and the globe, the addiction grew stronger over the years...and led to the inevitable transition from casual to serious photography.
Captivated by the interplay of light and shade, Richa is naturally attracted to the Black and White medium and to places which one finds light amidst darkness. From the calm, shaded insides of the churches in Kochi, to the archways and tombs of the many monuments of Delhi…the principal ‘person’ in her pictures seems to be “light” itself.
Richa has had solo exhibitions at the Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi and the Piramal Art Gallery, NCPA, Mumbai. She was also apart of the exhibition “80 Masters of Indian Photography” organized by Centre for Photography as an Art form (CPA), Mumbai in 2012.
