Vasantha Yogananthan's (b. 1985, France) practice addresses the space between
documentary and fiction. Working solely in analogue, his photographic projects are
developed over long periods of time and over the years he has developed a distinctive
colour palette solely based on natural light. His recently completed series, A Myth of Two
Souls (2013-2021), inspired by the epic tale The Ramayana, draws inspiration from
common imagery associated with this myth and its pervasiveness in everyday Indian life.
Yogananthan offers a modern retelling of a story first recorded in 300 BC, through
retracing the legendary route from north to south India. In 2021 Yogananthan was
awarded a Juror’s special mention at the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photobook
Award for Amma, the seventh and last photo book from this series. He has received
several awards, including FOAM Talent (2017) and an ICP Infinity Award for Emerging
Photographer of the Year (2017). Yogananthan is the fifth laureate of Immersion (2019)
and is set to undertake a residency in the United States in 2022, prior to a solo show at
SFMOMA and at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in 2023.
