Arko Datto (India, 1986) questions what it means to be a photographer in the digital age while simultaneously playing the role of observer and commentator on critical issues. He pursue narratives on seemingly disparate topics- forced migration, techno- fascism, surveillance in the digital panopticon, disappearing islands, nocturnal realms and psychosomatic stress of captive animals to name a few.
He has recently won the Arles Prix Voies Off 2017 and the Gomma Grant 2016. He has been internationally published (TIME, National Geographic, Newsweek, Liberation, Al Jazeera, Financial Times) and exhibited (Arles, Ffotogallery, Museum fur Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt, Chobi Mela. Angkor Photo Festival).
