Dayanita Singh is one of India's most influential photographers. Her magical, probing and elusive visual essays are now presented in an extensive solo show at Bildmuseet, the first comprehensive presentation of her work in the Nordic countries.

Experimental and interdisciplinary, she has moved between documentary photography and contemporary art in order to explore ideas on photography and narration. Her work often takes a curiously unsettling view of the everyday. Poetry, playfulness and surprise accompany a deep commitment to the medium of photography, which characterizes her visual storytelling.

The Adventures of a Photographer comprises works from the last twelve years: dreamlike landscapes, cityscapes and industrial nightscapes saturated with intense colour along with carefully executed black and white images of people and interiors, such as her renowned portraits of Indian upper-middle-class families and her latest project, File Room

Dayanita Singh (b. 1961) is based in New Delhi. She has exhibited at the Serpentine Gallery in London, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and at the Venice Biennale and she has also published her images in a number of books. Together with Ai Weiwei, Romuald Karmakar and Santu Mofokeng, she has been invited to represent Germany in the national pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2013.
