Passion for Photos

Harshvardhan Shah ’15 lived in Mubai before coming to Williston for tenth grade, where a course in photography opened up a new world for him. “I never realized that I had any artistic inclination or interest whatsoever,” he recently told Kajal magazine. “I found an outlet through my work and I just felt lighter.” Shah left Williston for New York, earning his B.A. in Culture and Media from The New School. He continues to pursue his passion there, focusing his work on queer South Asian stories and, more recently, fashion portraits. You can see his work on Instagram (@harshhy).
