Richa was born and brought up in Kanpur. Later shifted to New Delhi to pursue her graduation in Fashion communication from National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT). Being an academically sound student she ended up being a gold medalist in communication design. Her photography journey started while she was in her third year at NIFT.
The strongest, most defining aspect of Richa’s aesthetic is that she never conformed to the conventional ‘rules’, but made her own. Her visual style is different because it stems from her understanding of design and India, and yet transcends them to speak a contemporary language.
Each image carries a signature pluck from the same learning. This unique style and sense has won her appreciation and accolades in the field of Fashion and short film making.
