Kushwah, Vikram

Bio

Vikram Kushwah, born in New Delhi, India, is a fashion and art photographer based in England. Whether artistic or commercial, his pictures have a dream-like quality, in which the boundaries between dream and reality are blurred. In addition to being inspired by his own childhood memories, as well as childhood stories such as Alice in Wonderland, Vikram’s artistic influences include the photographers Guy Bourdin, Tim Walker and Deborah Turbeville, as well as the work of the Surrealists, the Romantics and the Pre-Raphaelites.

In 2008, Vikram moved to London to undertake a post-graduate diploma in Photography at the London College of Communication, after which, in 2010, he completed his MA in Photography at the University for the Creative Arts in Rochester, England. He has since been practicing in Britain and India, working for reputed publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Elle and showing his
work in galleries in the UK, Europe and the USA. His collector base spans Europe, America, Australia and Asia. Vogue Italia featured him among their 'New Talents' and selected his work to be exhibited in their Milan exhibition ‘Best of PhotoVogue’ in 2012. His work won a Cannes Young Lions Award (bronze) in 2013 for Best Photography for his Grey Singapore, Duracell batteries campaign. His work has been featured in reputed publications such as The Financial Times - How To Spend It, The Independent, Vogue Italia and Aesthetica Magazine, among others.

Vikram lives in the Oxfordshire countryside with three dogs, two cats and a few chickens - all rescue animals barring a Tibetan Spaniel - and his wife. When he’s not shooting, he likes spending his time walking their dogs outdoors.
