Abhishek Sharma was born in Chandigarh, India and is currently based in New York. His work encompasses photography, video sculpture, art applications, and installation. He was most recently featured in exhibitions at the Pingyao International Photography Festival, La Marcha de Mayo Art Fund Show, Photo-Ville, and various group exhibitions in Auckland, New Zealand.
Sharma recently obtained his M.F.A. in Photography from Parsons School of Design (2015-17).
Sharma’s work investigates the photographic medium as a time capturing device. In a series of photographs, the artist interrogates photography’s role as a medium used to capture reality. By juxtaposing images of disparate cultural identities and origins, Sharma calls the viewer’s attention to their role as interpreter, and to the ever-shifting meaning of images.
