Nyani Quarmyne

Ghanaian/Australian b.1973~~A self-taught photographer, when Nyani discovered photography he quickly abandoned his former career to become a full time photographer.  He refers to himself as a 'hybridised African' having been born in India to a Ghanaian father and Filipino mother and having lived in Kenya, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Canada, Australia, the USA and Ghana, in addition to the countries where his work and his travels have taken him.  His work hinges on the sameness he sees in all of us.~ ~Presently based in Accra, Ghana, Nyani has undertaken assignments internationally for a wide variety of NGOs, corporate and editorial clients.  His current personal interests include the living conditions and care arrangements of the mentally ill, the expression of faith in all its forms, and the Sahel region.~ ~~

Nyani’s work has been exhibited in Australia, various European countries, North America and West Africa. He is a past winner of the European Union Prize at the Rencontres de Bamako Pan-African Photography Biennial, and a finalist for the Australian National Photographic Portrait Prize.
