Ayesha's work has evolved through the shifting parameters of photography. She entered the world of photography in the black & white era, as Business India's first photographer. This genre became a fundamental part of her perception, and impacted her future work. She then moved on to the glitzy world of advertising photography of the 80s and 90s, along with its drama of black & white photography, as well as the 'in your face' element of vivid colour.
Making a foray into the photo book genre, Ayesha has produced six books to date, including Stree: Woman of India, Beyond Bombay Balconies and Under the Sun: Business as Usual, which focus on diverse and socially relevant topics.
Currently she has created a body of photo-artworks. The theme is 'integration' as two or more of her images have been melded together to produce cutting edge abstract compositions. The computer is used as a crayon or a watercolour wash, or to create vibrant symmetry, enhancing textures and layering in the colours. The artworks have their own specific identities and fall into broad categories, but still resonate in the spirit of integration.
