About My Business:

 

Ayush Ranka is an independent photojournalist based out of Bangalore, India. To him, photography is something that is private. His individuality is derived from it and his photographs in turn are consequential of this. Ayush believes that in a true democracy everybody has a right to a life with dignity regardless of their background. These motivations are a conduit for the exploration about life that comes easy to some and is almost impossibly arduous for others. He believes that any form of art has a very important role to play in fostering a sense of understanding between people in a very direct and unadulterated manner. And photography to him, is the most immediate. Urbanization, human rights, and art & culture are topics he likes to work with. His interests lie deeply rooted in the socio-political-economic trends of modern India. By addressing issues that have led to the disparity between urban and rural India through his photographic essays, Ayush hopes to build a connect in the minds and hearts of the average urban middle-class with the realization that their efforts and their contribution to social causes can really help bridge the gap between these two worlds. He was selected as one of the top ten short-listed photographers of the Redux Scholarship for the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop, Manali, India, 2009. He successfully completed the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop held in Manali in Aug 2009, under internationally acclaimed conflict photographer Ron Haviv, the series which have been featured on the official Foundry Website. His clients include Volvo, Azim Premji Foundation, GQ (India), Finantial Times Magazine, Harvard Business Review and Femina Magazine. His work has also appeared on webspaces such as Photojournale, Kafila and The Social Documentary Network. Apart from doing editorial and work of a photojournalistic nature, Ayush also takes up commercial assignments.
