Twinkle Banerjee is a photographer who works between digital and alternative photographic processes. Originally from India, she migrated to Canada in 2010 and has called it her home ever since. Her practice swings between exploring melancholic aesthetics and modern-day concepts. More recently, Twinkle was featured in theICP Global Images for Global Crisis exhibition at New York and she is currently working on her project Concrete. Twinkle is passionate about climate change and issues surrounding the global supply chain and is pursuing these issues to bring them to the forefront through her work. In the future, she also hopes to document rural and folk culture in India that is diminishing due to globalization.
