Priya Kambli’s work is rooted in her fascination in the intersection between her parents’ lives in India and her own in the U.S. For Kambli, photography is a means to bridge the gap between two cultures, come to terms with the effects of displacement, and to illuminate connections between the past and the present. Kambli’s work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad, including El Museo Nacional de la Fotografía de Bogotá, The Houston Center for Photography, The Center for Photography at Woodstock, SF Camerawork and The Silver Eye Center for Photography. She has received numerous grants and awards, including the En Foco New Works Photography Award Fellowship, the Photolucida Book Award, and The Houston Center for Photography Photographic Fellowship, and has been an Artist-in-Residence at Light Work and The Center for Photography at Woodstock. Her photographs are featured in both public and private collections including The Museum of Contemporary Photography. Her monograph, Color Falls Down, was published in 2010. Kambli is a professor of art at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri.
