Anusha Yadav graduated in Communication Design from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, India in 1997. With a  career in Graphic Design and Advertising in tow, Anusha also began working as a photo practitioner  in 2006.

In 2010 she founded Indian Memory Project – The world’s first online visual & narrative based archive, to trace a personal history and identity of the Indian Subcontinent through images found in family and personal archives. The project has been cited as exemplary and has pioneered an alternate method in which narratives of the world are told and understood. The project has invited the attention of 15 countries who have initiated their own cultural archives with Indian Memory as an inspiration.

It was redisplayed at Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai in 2017. The company also works as consultant to organisational and brand archives based in India.
