Philippe Calia (b. 1985, Paris) is an artist, photographer and filmmaker who has been living and working in India since 2011. His work has been awarded, exhibited internationally and is held in private collections.

Since 2013, Calia has been collaborating with PIX as a photo editor. Between 2015 and 2020, he co-directed BIND, a platform for photobooks in India with a public library.

Informed by an academic background in political science and anthropology, his practice currently engages with objects and institutions of memory, such as the family album or the museum. Often manoeuvring at the intersection of the still and moving image, as well as figuration and abstraction, his work incorporates discarded documents and mundane visual material through gestures of quotation, collage or erasure. Manners of perceiving, preserving and commemorating are always central to his approach.
