Annapurna Mellor is a travel photographer and writer based in Manchester, UK. She has traveled to over 60 countries around the globe, although focuses much of her personal work on India, the place she feels most at home.
Her father is an active photographer and, as she admitted in some interviews, he affected her for being a photographer, as it also made her a traveller.
She feels very comfortable in foreign places, when she communicate with people from different cultures and she feels confident, as a woman, alone in those places.
It’s only since she started taking photographs that she realised that she’s a very visual person. Capturing things in a beautiful way has become an obsession for her, because photography has the power to tell a story through a single image and a huge impact on the way that the viewer looks at a place or a culture.
Annapurna Mellor, as I mentioned before, is also a Travel Writer but photography always comes first for her. She’s always much more focused on making images than she’s working on words. Often, when she takes photos, she’s thinking stories of a place or of culture. So, she likes to be able to weave her photography into stories and sometimes accompany that with writing.
Her keen ability to make images and collections with a strong narrative arc is really impressive. Her work can be found in “National Geographic Traveller Magazine”, “Lonely Planet Books”, “The Guardian” and many more.
