Hello, I am Ipsita!

My work captures multifarious emotions & values. I explore the subjects of sexuality, politics, power & collective care through visual storytelling. A strong believer in hope-based communications, I love to capture various human emotions invoking empathy, kindness & shared humanitarian worldview.
