Riti Sengupta (b.1993) is a photographer based out of Calcutta, India. She pursued Master of Design in Photography from National Institute of Design. As an exchange student with a scholarship from the Goethe-Institut, she attended Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst, Leipzig, Germany in 2016. Her practice is an inquiry into the ideas of identity, memory and the politics of gender.

Along with photography, Riti works with text, found information, collages and illustration. With her work, she wishes to deconstruct the ways in which women have been traditionally represented in Indian photography.
