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, as a performer, teacher and choreographer. She has the DNA of movement tattooed on her heart.
Her work reflects a minimalist, graphic aesthetic which captures a gentle yet colourful world. In the process of creation, she allows herself to be intuitively guided by her sensitivity to the environment and the play of natural light, and her emotional resonance with her subject. 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.
