Snapshots of Tradition

Sonali Ohrie (b. 1995, London, UK) is a self-taught South Asian Female Photographer and Director, brought up in England and raised in a Hindu-Punjabi household. Hardly able to find acclaimed visual assets from an Indian female perspective, she quit her full-time job to change that narrative.

She utilises her art as a catalyst for change, particularly in expressing themes of womanhood, intimacy, and power. Through her powerful and impactful images, she portrays authentic stories while also confronting harmful stereotypes, aiming to enlighten her audience.

In 2022, she won the Female in Focus Global Photographer Award with the renowned British Journal of Photography, where her work was exhibited in London and NYC. This won this from the first professional portrait she ever took.

In 2023, the first video she made was picked up by Vogue and Levis. She then went on to make her official Video Directing debut with Apple Inc.
