Ram Shergill

Fashion Photographer

Vogue & Harper's Bazaar

“Growing up in the UK I had a dream… a dream that I could live my life through a kaleidoscope of different cultures” (Shergill, 2019) 
British-Indian photographer Ram Shergill captures a kaleidoscope of different cultures through his photography. His intercultural upbringing has been an asset in terms of his photographic explorations. 
Internationally recognised for his contribution to the industry, Ram remains at the forefront of his field, using both photography and fine art to create a discussion that questions the notion of identity, dress, and the power of performance. 
At the beginning of his photographic journey Ram Shergill worked with Milliner Philip Treacy on a project and was mentored into the world of fashion photography by Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen.  
Ram was Awarded the Arts Culture and Theatre Award (ACTA) in 2016 for his contribution to photography. His work has been shown in exhibitions worldwide including Sotheby’s, The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Wallace Collection, Somerset House and the Whitechapel Gallery and many more internationally acclaimed galleries.  
Since Graduating in 2019 from London College of Fashion Ram Shergill’s portraits of Amy Winehouse were acquired by The National Portrait Gallery and are now in their permanent collection.  
He has had books published internationally showcasing his work, including the highly acclaimed book, ‘India Fantastique’ published by Thames & Hudson — celebrating couturiers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. 
Ram continues to shoot for numerous international publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The Times, The Observer, L’Officiel and W magazine. He has also created highly innovative campaigns and books/ catalogues for Galeries Lafayette, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Gilan Diamonds, Leica Camera, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges amongst many others. 

Presently, Ram is on a PhD research program at University College London — the Bartlett School of Architecture where he is responding to the climate crisis through Bio-Integrated design.
