Born in 1957 in Delhi, Dinesh Khanna graduated in Economics and worked in the advertising industry for some years before succumbing to his passion for photography that he had been resisting for years, wanting to chalk out his own course rather than follow in the footsteps of his father, a well-known photographer. Colour is an emphatic element in the photographic work by this artist. The images in compositions that are eloquent in content come with an engaging visual appeal. Using photography as a tool for storytelling, Dinesh brings alive different aspects of Indian life in a quirky yet meaningful way. Shifting his gaze from assignments for corporate and commercial world, he incessantly pursues his interest in personal work and projects that include portraiture, culture and travel. Dinesh who writes a regular column on photography for a Delhi based magazine has had his work exhibited in shows held in India and the UK, and published in two photo books Bazaar and Living Faith. The artist, who lives on the outskirts of Delhi, is a Co-Director of the Delhi Photo Festival and teaches and conducts workshops regularly.
