you and me

nyay_bhushan Artist Statement: "I love to travel across dimensions - the moving and the still / the east and the west / the inner and the outer / the light and the night / the masculine and the feminine / the spiritual and the sensuous. The inter-connectedness of these inter-dimensional experiences nourish my visual expressions, whether as moving images or fine-art photographs, in the hope of attaining universal resonance. And along the way, if I happen to stretch - perhaps diminish - accepted artistic, cultural, socio-political or even undefined boundaries, then my journey can be my reward which I am happy to share with you." Nyay Bhushan was born in Nairobi, Kenya and raised in India while nurturing a life-long obsession for films and photography. As a self-taught film-maker and fine-art photographer, he has always strived to celebrate both the moving and the still image while being influenced and inspired by cross-cultural artistic endeavors. Nyay's filmography includes four short films (and some commissioned films) made for Filmaka.com, a global online initiative promoted by Hollywood-based producer Deepak Nayar (Bend It Like Beckham, Sense8). Since 2010, Nyay has won over 30 honors at the International Photography Awards (IPA), the Prix de la Photographie Paris Awards (PX3) and the Photography Masters Cup (Color Awards). A selection of Nyay's fine-art photographs of a performance by renowned Swiss choreographer Philippe Saire were featured in promotional material by the India office of PRO HELVETIA, the Swiss Arts Council. Nyay established lifestyle brand Directed By Nyay which presents unique visual statements via a stylish range of products, derived from his fine art photography and film sensibilities. The product range includes watches, clocks, womenswear, menswear, home decor, accessories and more. Directed By Nyay online stores are featured on Redbubble, Zazzle and Society6.
