Vasantha Yogananthan is an award-winning French artist whose practice addresses the space between documentary and fiction. Drawing inspiration from the imagery associated with The Ramayana and its pervasiveness in everyday Indian life, his 7-book project A Myth of Two Souls combines a wide range of techniques, including color photography, hand-painted photography, collages and video installation. He is the co-founder of the publishing house Chose Commune.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
