Photographer, curator, archivist and activist, Ram Rahman excavates layers and hierarchies embedded in Indian art, visual culture, society and politics. Collected images in his book “Biosphere” embrace the elite and familiar, including family, friends, political figures, strangers and fellow artists, many of whom are now celebrated artists of their generation. Rahman’s astute and affectionate documentation of Indian society and culture bring humor, empathy and critique to images of a rapidly changing landscape and cosmopolitan culture.
Rahman was born in 1955 to Indrani Rahman, a classical dancer, and Habib Rahman, a noted Indian architect. He received degrees in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Graphic Design from Yale University.
