Soham Gupta’s work constantly moves between the realm of documentary photography, art and the written word. He responds to themes of loneliness and isolation, of abuse and pain, of scarred pasts and uncertain futures, sexual tensions and existential dilemmas.

In 2018, Soham was selected by The British Journal of Photography as one of sixteen emerging photographers from more than 500 nominations made by a global panel of experts. In the same year, his book, « Angst » published by Akina Books was shortlisted for the Les Prix du LivrePhoto and Text Book Award at Les Rencontres d’Arles and the Paris Photo – Aperture Foundation First Photobook Award.
