RAVI AGARWAL Lives and works in New Delhi Ravi Agarwal has pursued a photography practice integrally with his pursuit as an environmentalist. His earlier work, in the documentary oeuvre, encompasses ‘nature’, ‘work,’ ‘labour,’ and the ‘street,’ while more recent work has been traversing questions of the self based on explorations of ‘personal ecologies.’ He now works with photography, video and installation.
