List of photobooks by Yogananthan, Vasantha

Vasantha Yogananthan is a French photographer and publisher. He co-founded the publishing House Chose Commune in 2014.

The artist's website states: « Yogananthan's strong interest in painting led him to work around the genres of portrait, still life and landscape. Using these traditions as a starting point, he refined his photographic approach to produce photographs that expand the traditional genres and are united by a distinctively muted colour palette, achieved solely using natural light. »

Vasantha has received numerous awards for his images (among them Prix Levallois 2016 and ICP Infinity Award for Emerging Photographer of the Year 2017) and the books published by Chose Commune ("Sobras" by Geraldo de Barros, Prix Nadar Gens d'Images 2017, French photobook of the year).

He has published his own work with Chose Commune: "Piémanson" in 2014, and the project "A Myth of Two Souls", a photographic narration of the Ramayana epic, over a series of seven photobooks (in progress) : "Early Times" (2016), "The Promise" (2017), "Exile" (2017), "Dandaka" (2018), "Howling Winds" (2019) and "Afterlife" (2020). The final book in the series will be published in 2021.
