Nandini Valli was raised in Chennai, India where she continues to live. She completed severaldegrees before entering the field of photography. After an 18-month apprenticeship with a leading commercial photographer in Chennai, Nandini decided to pursue a B.A Honours in Photography from the Arts Institute at Bournemouth, UK (now known as the Arts University College Bournemouth). This is where she realized she was more suited to producing art photography as opposed to commercial photography. Her works are influenced by photographers as diverse as Gregory Crewdson, Tina Barney, Jonathan Torgovnik, Raja Deen Dayal, Bourne&Shepard, to name a few.
Valli has emerged as one of the foremost exponents of performative photography in India. She has been showing her work internationally since 2007 and is currently represented by Sakshi Gallery in Mumbai, India.
