Ayush Ranka is an independent photographer based out of Bangalore, India. Ayush believes that in a true democracy everybody has a right to a life with dignity regardless of their background. These motivations are a conduit for the exploration about life that comes easy to some & is almost impossibly arduous for others. He believes that any form of art has a very important role to play in fostering a sense of understanding between people in a very direct & unadulterated manner. And believes photography is the most immediate.

Urbanization, human rights & culture are mostly topics he likes to work with. His interests lie deeply rooted in the socio-political trends of modern India, addressing concerns that have led to the disparity between urban and rural India through his photographic essays.
Ayush loves accepting challenging projects and his passion for taking photographs knows no bounds. He was selected as one of the top ten short-listed photographers of the Redux Scholarship for the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop, Manali, India, 2009. He successfully completed the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop held in Manali in Aug 2009, under internationally acclaimed photographer Ron Haviv, the series which have been featured on the official Foundry Website.

His clients include New York Times, Volvo, UVEX (Germany), Azim Premji Foundation, GQ (India), Financial Times Magazine, Harvard Business Review, Architectural Digest and Femina Magazine.
