About

SHIVANI

I am a visual storyteller constantly seeking moments that convey a story. The range of subjects I cover is fairly broad, but whether I'm photographing mountainous landscapes in north India, monuments in Delhi or a documentary study of culture and people, my aim is always to capture the life and fleeting beauty of those in-between moments.

 

Professionally,  a policy, advocacy, and communications specialist, I write on constitutional & legal matters, gender inequality and travel for various magazines and news dailies and edit books & reports for publishing houses and organisations. I am also a consultant advisor to non-profit organisations and businesses- helping them find communications solutions that frame their narratives and celebrate their work. In 2018 I founded Lest We Forget India,

a platform committed to remembering the service and sacrifices of the men and women of the Indian Armed Forces and Paramilitary Forces.

When I'm not editing or writing or chasing after my Basset Hound, I like to head off to the mountains, meditate, and grow organic vegetables. In my spare time, I volunteer my writing and photography services to social welfare organisations especially ones in the field of child education, women empowerment, and animal protection.

 

I am based in Gurgaon, India
