The first UK solo show of work by FOAM Talent 2017 winner Vasantha Yogananthan (b.1985) opens at The Photographer’s Gallery, London. A Myth of Two Souls is inspired by the Indian legend of The Ramayana, and follows a journey from north to south India to trace the impact of the epic myth on everyday Indian life.
Yogananthan’s works – which combine documentary and fiction – are created exclusively in analogue, offering a distinctive aesthetic that is at once ethereal and compelling. Providing a contemporary retelling, they form part of a continuously shifting narrative, bringing together evocative, dreamlike images that interlace history, fiction and vernacular realism through a subtle colour palette.
The exhibition runs 26 October to 14 January. Find out more here.
