(b.1985 Paris, France) an artist, photographer, and filmmaker who has been living and working in India since 2011. His works are set within an eclectic documentary practice that privileges long-term involvement and mixes photography, video, and text. Interweaving themes of memory, time, and history, his processes focus on vernacular forms of expression, between “objets trouvés” and residual documents. The act of representing eventually becomes a reflexive one: approached through negation, it focuses on spaces in which the Image is either threatened with a disappearance or prohibited altogether. Since 2013, Calia has been collaborating with PIX as a photo editor and researcher. Between 2015 and 2020, he co-directed BIND, a platform for photography in India with a public photobook library.
