Raj is a photographer in New York City. An immigrant from Mumbai, India, he came to the US for grad school, did a PhD, worked in tech for over a decade, and eventually decided to leave it all to pursue a calling for art. He's a straight guy married to a queer transgender man. As someone who constantly inhabits multiple worlds - India and the US, tech and art, straight and queer - he brings all of that experience into his photographic explorations of identity. He is constantly driven by the question, "Who gets to be beautiful? Who gets to be art?", noticing and challenging norms of beauty in various photographic genres.
