Pablo Bartholomew is a self-taught photographer based in New Delhi.

As a photojournalist, he documented societies in conflict and transition for over 20 years. His work has been featured in publications like New York Times, Time, Life, Newsweek, Business Week, National Geographic, Geo, Der Spiegel, Figaro Magazine, Paris Match, Telegraph, The Sunday Times Magazine, The Guardian, and Observer Magazine.

His first solo exhibitions at Art Heritage Gallery, New Delhi (1979) and Jehangir Art Gallery, Bombay (1980) featured work that captured the marginal, fringe worlds in which he lived. Since then, he has exhibited at galleries and photo festivals worldwide, including Delhi, Mumbai, New York, London, Berlin, Shanghai and Paris.

He is a three-time World Press Photo Award winner (including the 1984 "Picture of the Year" for his iconic image of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy) and a recipient of the Padma Shri.
