Neeq has always been intrigued by the ever-changing and obscure philosophy of existence, which has been her inspiration as a song-writer and lyricist. Through the medium of photography, this curiosity extends to the physical form; the unique features and idiosyncrasies that make human beings living, breathing artworks in themselves.
Drawn to high impact black and white visuals, Neeq explores the plethora of abstract emotions that are undeniable to the human experience, from the perspective of endurists, escapists and anarchists, revealing a species that is deeply connected by a sense of universal consciousness.
Currently, Neeq is studying MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography and exploring visual story-telling, with a particular interest in personal relationships, mental health, identity, subculture and the effects of cultural and socio-economic disparity . Proposals to collaborate on projects in these areas are particularly welcomed.
