Ram Shergill is a photographer who captures a kaleidoscope of different cultures through his images. Internationally recognised for his contribution to the industry, Ram is at the forefront of his visual field, using both photography and fine art imagery to create an inter-cultural discussion that questions the notion of identity, dress, and the power of performance.
Ram is a regular contributor for international editions of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The Times, The Observer, Wallpaper and W magazine. He has also created highly innovative campaigns and books/ catalogues for Galeries Lafayette, Gilan Diamonds, Leica Camera, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges.
At the start of his career Ram worked with Milliner, Philip Treacy on a project and was mentored into the world of fashion by Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen. Ever since working with Alexander McQueen, Ram has been motivated by the fashion icon that once stressed to him that he was influenced by the macabre.
Shergill’s work is regularly displayed in exhibitions internationally, including Sotheby’s, The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Wallace Collection, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Leica Gallery Los Angeles, Sotheby’s, Somerset House and the Whitechapel Gallery. Ram Shergill has recently had a selection of his portraits acquired by the National Portrait Gallery, which are part of the permanent Collection, and has gained the Arts Culture and Theatre Award for his photography.
