Documentary Photographer & Filmmaker, National Geographic

Asha Stuart

Asha Stuart is a documentary photographer and filmmaker whose work focuses on sociocultural themes. Her passion for storytelling has taken her across the world—documenting rural village voodoo ceremonies in Haiti and acid attack burn wards in India. Stuart’s story interests are rooted in the lives of people living in marginalized communities and facing injustice in areas of racial inequality, women’s rights, and environmental issues. Stuart’s National Geographic Society grant funded her work documenting the Siddi tribal people, an African diaspora community that arrived in India some 500 years ago.
