Nikhil Chopra (India)
Born 1974 in India. Lives and works in Mumbai.
With his hometown India as a consistent motif, he creates works employing photographs, videos, and performances. He is best known for the series of photographs in which he posed as a fictional Indian prince Sir Raja. Dramatic stories of the Indian royalty during the colonial period one would immediately recall are faithfully presented in the form of antiquated family photographs or portraits.
