Two photographs by Manjari Sharma, entitled Ron and Born, were selected by juror John Paul Caponigro for the Center’s “Elements of Water” exhibition. Manjari is a Brooklyn-based photographer, originally from Mumbai, India, who often photographs people and water—usually incorporating both within the same composition. One of her selected images, Ron, comes from her well-received Shower Series, which has been featured as a PDN Photo of the Day and discussed in an interview at Nymphoto.
Most recently, the Shower Series caught the eye of a German brand that manufactures fine bathroom accessories called Grohe, particularly a woman named Kapila Sethi. Manjari told the Center,
“The art director Syed Usman came upon the Shower Series during a random search on water based images and presented me to the client. I was thus commissioned to photograph 10 Indians in the shower. The tag line for Grohe is appropriately ‘Enjoy Water.’ It makes me so happy to work with a client that is hiring me to create a series entirely based off of my aesthetics.”

She has also recently been added to Richard Levy Gallery’s Project Room, which allows collectors to purchase work by emerging artists of varying mediums.
