A self-taught photographer and film-maker, I have always strived to celebrate both the moving and the still image in my visual expressions. Born in Kenya and raised in India, I am also influenced and inspired by cross-cultural artistic endeavors.

My photography has featured in promotional material for the Swiss Arts Council's India office and various lifestyle publications. Awards - 2012 PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris: Bronze winner - book (series) - other category. 2011 International Photography Awards: seven Honorable Mentions for my three entries in four professional categories. 2010 PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris: First place, People's Choice Award, fine art - books - category. www.nyaybhushan.com
