Harika Maddala, Photo Editor

Harika Maddala is a senior year student at San Francisco State University, pursuing a bachelor’s
in Photojournalism and a minor in International Relations. Born and raised in India, Harika
earned her BA in journalism in the country and transferred to SF State in 2019, to earn a four-
year bachelor’s degree. She has been clicking photos since age 14 and has had her photos
displayed at various galleries including at a TedX exhibition in India in 2016, at Yerba Buena
Arts Gallery in June 2019, and at Samy’s Camera in the Spring of 2019. Harika enjoys shooting
anything with a lot of action- dance, weddings, concerts, protests, and riots. She is currently
exploring multimedia and finds video and audio editing relaxing- almost like a craft of weaving
things together. She joined the Xpress newspaper team in Summer 2020 and this is her last
semester in college. She aims to work on more projects related to queer identities, race and
immigration issues, body image, and mental health in the future.
