Born in India and raised in New Jersey, Rohina grew up in a family of doctors spanning three generations. Rohina’s interest in photography began in her teens, when she was introduced to the art of traditional black and white film photography. She found early success publishing photos for her high school yearbook, newspaper, and literary arts magazine and later as a writer/photographer for a New York City newspaper. While an undergraduate at Brown University, Rohina also studied photography at RISD and she was a staff photographer for the Brown Daily Herald.
A graduate of Brown University Medical School and resident at UCLA Medical Center, her training led to a career as a neurologist. Taught to be a skilled observer of her patients, Rohina was instilled with a deep and unique appreciation of the human experience. Her ability to forge the sacred trust between doctor and patient has been instrumental in fostering a parallel connection between photographer and subject.
Rohina has exhibited in juried group shows both nationally and internationally and been published online. Rohina recently received an Honorable Mention in Portraiture with the Neutral Density Photography Awards in 2016 and an Honorable Mention in Portraiture with the Monochrome Awards in 2015. She lives with her husband, three children and two golden retrievers in Los Angeles.
