The Photography of Lekha Singh
Who are we? What separates us? What unifies us?
Fine art photographer Lekha Singh has been exploring these simple yet infinitely complex questions for decades. As we deepen our stake in the 21st century these age-old questions seem to be of increasing importance. Although the theme of her work varies with her evolving vision, the one thing that remains constant is her desire to highlight underrepresented subjects. Whether Lekha is taking a macro approach to weeds – flora’s most under-appreciated species – or she is traveling the world exposing cultural nuances, Singh delves into a paradigm that celebrates the eternal beauty found within subjects hidden in plain sight.
Lekha Singh’s work offers insight into the human condition around the world. Singh places great value on impermanence, authenticity and imperfection. These are uniquely universal characteristics - perhaps a binding thread. The exhibited body of work is a small window on Singh’s journeys across multiple cultures. Within these journeys we witness Singh’s ability to capture the essence of a people. This translates to a photograph with timeless elegance – striking at our elemental selves.
Lekha Singh contributed photographs to National Geographic’s The Other Side of War: Women’s Stories of Survival and Hope. Her major exhibitions — Created Equal, Nomadic Camera, African Journeys, and The Other Half: Women in Focus — have been shown in museums (including the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.) and galleries throughout the United States. Lekha Singh’s work can be found in important private collections as well as public collections such as The Rubin Museum of Art in New York and the University of California, Berkley.
