Jaisingh Nageswaran ジャイシング・ナゲシュワラン

I Feel Like a Fish

KG+ SELECT 2023 Winner

Curated by Pascal Beausse

Jaisingh Nageswaran, a self-taught photographer from Vadipatti Village, Tamil Nadu, India, received his education from his grandmother, defying the constraints of his working-class upbringing. Focused on portraying the lives of marginalised communities, his work explores gender identity, caste discrimination, and rural issues. Amid the pandemic, he returned to his roots, redirecting his lens to spotlight Dalit resistance and resilience by documenting childhood memories and family histories spanning four generations. His photography has been showcased in solo and group exhibitions globally, earning recognition such as the Serendipity Arts Foundation Grant, Les Rencontres de la Photographie d’Arles Grant, and Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice Fellowship. In 2023, his project I Feel Like a Fish was featured at the 13th African Biennale of Photography, and he achieved honours, including the Grand Prix of KG+ SELECT 2023 at KYOTOGRPAHIE and the Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac Photography Award in France.
