Tate presents the Tate Photography Series, a new publishing programme providing an introduction to some of the most important and exciting photographers at work today. Four titles will be published each year, all connected through a common theme. The first four books, on Liz Johnson Artur, Sheba Chhachhi, Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen and Sabelo Mlangeni explore community and solidarity in distinct ways.
Sheba Chhachhi is a photographer, women’s rights activist and an installation artist based in New Delhi. The powerful photographs reproduced in her book are selected from three major series, co-curated with her subjects. Interweaving the mythic and the social, her work, as she puts it, ‘is really about opening up a conversation, in the process of creating as well as sharing, to invite people to think about personal, social and public concerns, primarily around feminism and ecology.’
