New Artist - Photographer Tanya Ahmed

It is our pleasure to introduce Tanya Ahmed. She is an urban photographer, who travels the world in search of the “intriguing, cultural and visual wonders that usually go unseen.” In other words, she takes the road less traveled when she works. Even if in a city with a major attraction, her work is completed on the side streets—where she finds the art in everyday life.

While New York certainly provides an unlimited amount of inspiration, Ahmed returned to the Newton area of Reading this past summer—after a 30-year absence. During her stay she produced  a series of new work called the "Gated Community", a selection of twenty photographs which are now featured at SiOTT.
