    Honorable Mention in Fine Art / Portrait

One can’t exist whiteout the other one. They are essential to maintaining the balance of life. For each to be understood, shadow needs light, as light needs shadow. Together, their opposition represents a two-fold process designed to bring about the spiritual evolution of humanity, and the transformation of individual lives.

Nancy Hamel (Nhi) is a fine art photographer and artist based in Montreal. Nancy’s work is strongly influenced by her background in contemporary dance. She has the DNA of movement tattooed on her heart. Her work reflects a minimalist, graphic aesthetic which captures a gentle yet colourful world. She approaches subjects that are serious, often with deep personal significance, but with a touch of softness, aimed at drawing out beauty and prompting reflection by the viewer.
