Vinay Mahidhar started photographing at the age of sixteen with the camera presented to him by his father, who himself is a well known photographer.
Vinay’s work covers a wide range of genres including portraits of itinerary performers & traditional workers to fashion & advertising work. He has been interested in collaborative projects as a way of extending his practice outside of a framework defined by studio photography. One of the best examples of this is his collaboration with the artist Sudarshan Shetty in a Show “A Brisk Walk Makes you feel good” in the year 2000. In between his ongoing project for the last two years based on the comparative architecture across the world,. He is also in the process of working on a collaborative multi-media video based project scheduled for 2009.
