Kunga Tashi Lepcha is an independent photographer based in Gangtok. He has the lightest touch with his photos and works on well researched projects that are important to him and local to his origins. He might be an adivasi or native photographer from the mountains of Sikkim but he is so much more than that binary definition working on complex, layered images pregnant with meaning. He is completely self taught and is a part of multiple artist collectives like the Confluence Collective in the north east of India. Kunga has also had multiple exhibits and publications of his work in India and Myanmar and in 2019 he received the Amiyaprabha Chaudhuri Memorial Grant 2019 at the Egaro Photo Festival.
