Arati Kumar-Rao is a National Geographic Explorer, an independent environmental photographer, writer, and artist documenting the slow violence* of ecological degradation. She crisscrosses the South Asian subcontinent following a single story, across seasons, sometimes over years, in order to chronicle South Asia’s changing landscapes and climate, and its effect on livelihoods and biodiversity. She communicates through photos, longform narratives, and art, and is working on her first book.
She is currently on a National Geographic Explorer grant to document forced human migration.
Arati’s work has appeared in The National Geographic Magazine, The Hindu, #Dysturb, The Guardian, BBC Outside Source, Hindustan Times, Mint, and other outlets.
She contributes to @EverydayClimateChange and @EverydayExtinction on Instagram and has been exhibited in India and internationally.
When not in the field, she calls Bangalore home where she is a happy slave to three rescued cats.
