About the Course Leader:
Mandip Singh Seehra is a professional artist and photographer and says of his own work: ‘As a photographer my work involves capturing the world around me. I have recently completed a series of images for a local charity exploring the lives of individuals involved in their work; looking at who they are, their hopes, dreams and seeing them in spaces where they are happy and free. I have also undertaken a number of portrait projects capturing communities, reflecting and capturing the many different faces making up my home city. I describe myself as a fine arts photographer capturing the many different lives and environments surrounding me.’
