She went on to win the Miss India title which is her most memorable moment!

"...when I won the Miss India crown! Bizarre as it may sound, it was so unexpected that I was just stunned! There were so many other girls who were far taller, more beautiful and more elegant!"

Pamela Bordes (Singh)

Pamela Singh is now a well known photographer and artist of international repute. She studied at the Parsons School of Design in New York, USA, The American College in Paris, France and the International Centre of Photography, New York, USA. 

She started working in the dark room at the age of 13 experimenting with old negatives. She took pictures much later on and initially worked as a photojournalist in Africa, Southeast Asia and India. Her work was distributed by Gamma Press Photos and was published in newspapers and magazines like The Independent of London, The Sunday Times, Marie Claire, The Washington Post, Newsweek, Paris Match and Photo.

While in Africa she also made wildlife documentaries on 16mm film, and later photographed the civil unrest of the continent. After leaving Africa she moved to New York and worked only in black-and-white photography for several years. Her work featured in India:  A celebration of independence organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Pennsylvania, USA in 1997 and accompanied by a catalogue and essay by Victor Anant, published by Aperture, New York, USA. This exhibition traveled worldwide. The same year her work appeared in a group show titled Black and White sponsored by the Ford Foundation.

In 2003 she adopted a new style of work mostly self portraits using mixed media in which the work was photographed and hand painted, leading to a solo exhibition at Admit One Gallery, New York. She simultaneously opened with Sepia International Gallery, New York, showing her portfolio from Angkor Wat, Cambodia. Her work led to outstanding reviews in The New York Times for both bodies of work. She has also shown her work in shows at The Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, Massachusetts, Auckland Museum of Art, The Daimler Contemporary, Germany, and Naturemorte, New Delhi.
