Kamal Badhey was born and raised in New York. She enjoys running around cities with her camera by her side. She goes here, there, and everywhere. Her love for photography started in the darkrooms of her Long Island high school, where she worked out her adolescent existential crises. Since then she has worked on freelance projects and as a visual arts teacher in school and alternative settings. She completed her degree at Goldsmiths, University of London in the Masters in Photography and Urban Cultures program, where she discovered interesting ways of blending photography and sociology. Her visual storytelling flirts with practices in ethnography, portraiture, art, fashion, and documentary.
