Suki Dhanda

Suki Dhanda successfully combines a career as a newspaper photographer with gallery and installation commissions showing work alongside the likes of Rankin and Turner prize winner Gillian Wearing. Suki graduated with an HND in the late 1980s, coming to the College from Slough. She was an advertising photographer's assistant for the next three years and in the process assembled a portfolio by doing free shoots, notably for the music magazine Straight No Chaser. Her big break came when The Observer commissioned her to take photographs of mothers and daughters. It brought her a freelance contract that has sustained her wider practice for the last eight years.
