Anusha is the Founder of Indian Memory Project - A social endeavor to trace a personal history of India, through pictures found in family Albums. She currently works from New Delhi and Mumbai.
Indian Memory Project was founded in February 2010. It is an online, curated, visual and oral-history based archive that traces a personal history of the Indian Subcontinent, its people, cultures, professions, cities, development, traditions, circumstances and their consequences. Applying images, letters and stories from family archives (sent and collected from contributors), it reconstructs a visual history that is emotionally rich, vivid, informative and even more surprising than we think.
