Working in photography, production and mixed media, INDIA MARTIN is a visual artist and producer exploring social activism, culture and urban landscapes. She produces visual art and cultural experiences that transcend place and space by using strategies often found in Afro-surrealism. India’s interest in documenting urban landscapes and the people that traverse them comes from a desire to show people of color in conversation with the earth and a connection to natural surroundings. Her style of mixing textiles with photography comes from her interest in movement, the feel of materials and how certain colors, tones and textures call up specific emotional states and change how we interpret images. #indimphotography
