Anusha Yadav was brought up between UK, USA and India in a family that encouraged cultural and intellectual curiosity. After graduating from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad in 1997, her career trajectory has been incredibly eclectic – leading her to become an internationally renowned photography and paper artist.

In 2010, Anusha founded Indian Memory Project – The world’s first online visual & narrative archive that traces personal identities & histories of the Indian Subcontinent via images found in personal photo albums. The project has pioneered an alternate method for narratives, and histories of the world to be understood and has inspired 21 countries and several cultural entities to implement similar formats in their archives. The project is now included in international syllabi and curriculum worldwide. In 2015, The New Yorker magazine showcased Indian Memory Project on Instagram to two million new visitors. Inspired by the project, Anusha also researched and exhibited a narrative based show on historical criminal investigations from the subcontinent – The Photograph is Proof,  displayed in the UK in 2015, and then at Chemould Prescott Road, India in 2017.

In inclusion to being a speaker on several esteemed panels, universities and museums around the world, Anusha has been awarded by the International Design Awards for Human Intelligence in China, Europe’s Prix Ars Electronica award, both international awards for excellence in Digital Arts, the L’oreal Paris Femina Women Achievers’ Award and the Innovator of the Year – by the India Today Women’s Summit.
