TENZING DAKPA (Providence, RI)

Tenzing Dakpa uses photography to create visual dialogues weaving loose, personal conversations with his subjects that sustain a sense of spontaneity. He says of his work, “My projects are not intended to affect communities or convey social messages. The subjects I have chosen to work with have always been personal in nature. In fact, when I look back at my images, I feel a sense of belonging as they talk about me and the spaces I come from.”


Tenzing Dakpa is a graduate from the Delhi College of Art and received an MFA in Photography from Rhode Island School of Design in 2016. Tenzing completed a Visual Art residency at CPW in 2016.
