Briana Blasko is a San Francisco-born portrait photographer who studied at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Before moving to India in 2008, she lived in New York for 12 years photographing contemporary dance for the New York Times. Her love for the camera is deeply connected to the landscapes and dances of India, and her work across the Indian subcontinent captures the body’s intricate patterns of movement and its interplay with the myriad hues, textures and moods of woven cloth. Her photographs have appeared in numerous publications and have been exhibited in India at the Vadehra Art Gallery, Prince of Wales Museum, Kaladham, as well as abroad. Her latest book, Dance of the Weave, was published by Penguin Books India in December 2013.
