Dayanita Singh’s photographic work often presents a curious view of the seemingly everyday. Her recent projects use the possibilites and peculiarities of colour film to produce lush photographs saturated with intense colour. These works present a landscape which exists as much in the artist’s imagination as in the real world. Publishing is also a significant part of the artist’s practice: in her books, often published without text, Singh experiments with different ways of producing and viewing photographs
