This book celebrates Dayanita Singh as the 2022 winner of the Hasselblad Prize, considered the most prestigious international photography award.

Sea of Files highlights Singh's consistent and unique engagement with the archive, both in a real sense (including the overflowing burdens of India's public and private archives) and a metaphorical one: the archive as a container of cultural experience. The book includes Singh's associative visual essay, "Sea of Files", in its entirety, as well as - for the first time in a publication - "Museum of Innocence (The Madras Chapter)" and other series that address the meanings and materiality of archives.
