Meet the Artist

Nicole Benewaah is a photographer and visual designer currently based in Bremen, where she acquired a bachelor degree in Integrated Design at the University of Arts in Bremen, during the academic year of 2020/2021.

Her work sits at the intersection between fine art, portraiture and documentary photography, focusing on the social phenomena surrounding Black people and their representation in culture. The impermanence of the traces we as humans leave in our society, as well as the formulated contexts used to understand and discuss such traces, are central to her practice.

My Work

With a calm and observing gaze I try to capture the essence of every project with a respectful and collaborative attitude.

I’m the recipient of the Female in Focus Award 2020 provided by the British Journal of Photography. An exhibition held in New York showcasing and celebrating my work and those of 21 amazing female photographers. The event will take place on June 9th 2021.
