Chirag Jindal (b. 1993) is an artist-surveyor working at the intersection of documentary journalism, new media art and contemporary cartography. After graduating with his Master’s Degree in Architecture in 2016, Jindal began exploring the role of terrestrial LiDAR as an emerging medium for photographic documentation. His developing practice seeks to document our relationship to marginalised landscapes, in order to “unravel the hidden effects, and unseen layers, of human presence.” His research-based approach brings him in collaboration with groups close to his subjects, including scientists, landowners, indigenous groups and local government. Jindal is best known for his debut project Into The Underworld - an ongoing series that has gained critical recognition, including the 2020 Royal Photographic Society Under 30's Award and the Bialystok Interphoto Grand Prix.
