Pablo Bartholomew is based in New Delhi, India, dividing his time between photographing, running long term photography work shops and managing a software company that specializes in photo databases solutions and server based digital archiving systems. For instance, between 2001 and 2003 he conducted a workshop for emerging photographers in India with the support of the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam.

Pablo Bartholomew will talk about his images of Naga tribals in the symposium "Visualizing Tribal India," organized and funded by the South Asia Institute at the University of Texas at Austin. This event will occur on Friday afternoon, Sept. 21 in the Meyerson Conference Room, Hogg Building from 3- 5 p.m. Pablo has spent many years photographing societies in transition in different locations. While he has long been attracted by tribal cultures in India, his engagement with the Nagas is especially significant due to events in his family’s life.
