Prashant Panjiar (b. 1957)
Prashant Panjiar is indisputably one of India’s best known photographers, and
certainly among its most erudite and articulate. A post-graduate in Political
Science from Pune University, India, he worked on photographic projects focusing
on peasant movements and other social issues through his college and university
days. His first self-financed project that received public acclaim was his work for a
book on banditry in the Chambal region of Central India. Prashant has worked for
India’s two leading magazines, India Today and Outlook, where he brought a rare
editorial streak to photography.
A frequent India contributor to Time magazine, Prashant now runs his own
syndication firm, Livewire Images. In 2000, he held his acclaimed photo exhibition
‘Kings & Commoners’, and in 2004 published India: The Definitive Images
(Penguin).
