Karanjit SinghKaranjit Singh is a class of 2016 student in the Department of Photography at NYU Tisch. Born and raised in India, his interest in documentary photography first started after he discovered a box full of old negatives and photographs in his grandfather’s cupboard in 2010. Coming from a background of social activists, he wanted to tell stories empowered people and gave voice to the voiceless. He is currently working on photographing the exiled Tibetan diaspora and its struggle for independence against a backdrop of increasing human rights violations by the Chinese government.

At the age of 15 she was introduced to photojournalism after shadowing San Express News photographer, Lisa Krantz. Throughout high school she continued to be mentored by Krantz, who showed her the ins and outs of the business and photography. It was through the mentoring experience, attending various events and meeting new people from all different walks of life, that she fell in love with photography and decided to study it in college. She hopes to one day inspire and help kids just as she was by Krantz. It is her goal to one day travel the world as freelance photojournalist.
