Anita Khemka


Anita Khemka Self-Portrait

“Since 1996, Anita Khemka’s has worked in the realm of social documentary, photographing people living on the margins of society. She has worked largely with sexual minorities, prostitutes, mentally handicapped individuals and HIV positive subjects. Besides altering social attitudes towards these communities, Khemka also seeks to bring to fore the individuality of these complex subjects in a sensitive and subtle manner. Her work was also the subject of a documentary called Between the Lines, which explored the lives and conditions of the hijra or eunuch community of India. By dealing with taboo and off-limit themes, Khemka’s body of work has given not only a face, but also an identity to India’s ostracised citizens.” (source:
