Dayanita Singh is the winner of the 2022 Hasselblad Award.

With this book, the internationally celebrated artist Dayanita Singh returns to her artistic beginnings. In the catalogue for the first comprehensive retrospective, the first stop of which is hosted by the Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin, Singh presents early works from her 1980-1986 oeuvre. From hundreds of slides and contact prints, the artist made a selection of personal and powerful black-and-white photographs. As a rediscovery and look into her own past, the theme of the “archive”, central to Singh’s work, takes on a central dimension here. The media of photography, installation and book intertwine in Singh’s work in a unique way, which is why this book also features recent photographs from the exhibition.
