Neeq Serene
Photographer

Neeq has always been intrigued by the ever-changing and obscure philosophy of existence, which has been her inspiration as a songwriter and lyricist. Through the medium of photography, this curiosity extended to the physical form; the unique features and idiosyncrasies that make human beings living, breathing artworks in themselves.

She strives to unveil masks beneath masks to reveal a deeply connected species, united by a sense of universal consciousness.
