Bindi Vora

About

Bindi Vora is a contemporary photographic artist. Her practice utilizes various analogue processes, often taking inspiration from her everyday surroundings, which include her personal archive. Bindi’s work teases out subtle marks and pigments within the materials she uses, such as negatives and photographic paper; the results often create vast spaces of color, light and subtle detail that contemplate ideas of perception and representation of the photographic print.In 2013, Bindi graduated from University of Westminster with a BA in Photographic Arts. She has exhibited in a number of group exhibitions in the United Kingdom and across Europe; has been published in PYLOT MagazineCapricious Magazine as well as appearing on various websites including The Photographers’ GalleryTroika EditionsPaper Journal and For Example; being named as one to watch by Art Fetch.She published her first photographic book In the blue light we failed. in 2014 which has been recently acquired by The Museum of Modern Art, NY, The Women’s Art Library at Goldsmith’s University, London, Indie Photobook Library, New York, The Hellenic Centre for Photography, Athens amongst others.In addition, she is also a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Westminster on the BA Photography course and is part of the Hemera Photographic Collective.
