Biography

Capturing images of discarded possessions and forgotten spaces in poetic photographs, Siddhartha Tawadey explores ideas of urban decay and evolution. His recent series, the “Geography of Solitude,” examines what the surrealists call the “unconscious” of the city, reflecting on overlooked spaces and “random happenings” that take place within it. “I have an inclination in my art to delve into history and recover the old, the tarnished, the rusted, the unnoticed, and bring it back to life,” says Tawadey. Born in India and having studied in the UK, he has focused his lens on the narratives and histories embedded in spaces around London and New Delhi, among other cities.
