PARTICIPANT / Nikhil Roshan

  • Name Nikhil Roshan
  • Country India

Nikhil Roshan has been visually documenting communities in conflict, migration and environmental degradation for half a decade. Trained in broadcast at the Asian College of Journalism, he began his career with a TV news channel in Mumbai but was soon drawn to print media for its reflective capacity and value for precision. He went on to work as a feature writer and editor covering the arts, culture and politics for publications like The Indian Express, Timeout and The Bengal Post. His passion for visual arts eventually took him to photography, a medium in which he feels most at home, using it as a tool for communication and for making art. Roshan’s pictures have appeared in Indian and foreign publications like The Caravan, Frontline, FountainInk, Narrative, Vogue and the British Journal of Photography, as well as a book length study on forced migration by the Mahanirban Calcutta Research Group. His clients include non-profits like UNICEF, International Justice Mission, Lawyers Collective and Kalpavriksh.
