Uma Damle is a photographer and filmmaker living and working in New Delhi, India.
Uma took to the theatrical narrative of fashion photography while pursuing a bachelors degree in Fashion Communication at National Institute of Fashion Technology. In 2015, she was awarded two prestigious national scholarships to study a fully funded MA in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion.
She is drawn to the uncanny and unusual in an otherwise humdrum universe. She likes to dream up realities which are different from the one we inhabit in a delicate yet significant way and finds constructed imagery to be the ideal medium to bring these visions to life. While fashion photography is her speciality, she also enjoys shooting food and portraiture and experimenting with moving images.
Uma is also a trained Hindustani Classical vocalist, illustration enthusiast and a lazy writer.
