The Confluence Collective

We are a collective of photographers and researchers working with our respective interests to create a common platform to bring together visual and oral stories of the Darjeeling-Sikkim Himalayas.

Our purpose at the Confluence Collective is to use visual mediums to rewrite and re-tell our stories from within, filling in the gaps that continue to dominate the narratives on the people, places and communities that make up the region of Sikkim and Darjeeling Hills. We seek to rebuild our stories, lost in the distorted narratives defining our existence and identities likewise, constantly reducing us to the margins with our stories only being told and written from the ‘outside’.
