Ahuja creates self-portraits staged in different environments in which history, myth and personal narrative co-exist. She is particularly concerned with the notions of inward and outward gaze, and sees her work as a vehicle for self-invention creating an Amazonian type woman striding through nature and transcending the archetype of “the rescuing prince.”
