BIO

IDONA ASAMOAH

 I create images in Natural beauty, realistic and elegance that is how  I approach my individual subjects. 

My approach works between Fine Art, Portrait, 

advertising, and fashion. My photography work moods the realism of the extraordinary and ordinary. 

I believe that every concept or character have their own extra unique beauty and bold style.

I was a painter and started my vision as a photographer in 2010, I begin to photograph with My first complex point and shoot camera which

I got as a gift from my German friend who visited ghana in early 2010.

I and my best friend got together sharing one camera week by week. I am a self-taught photographer by then I looked and get inspiration from the internet by looking to other photographers and artists who inspire me a lot.

 

I like exploring my creativity not only on Digital but also Analog.

 

2013 I got a chance to travel to Germany and then Study Communication Design and Art Directing in Hamburg as I still fighting for my migration. I express my senses of creativity in Art by Photography. I specialize in Portrait and Fashion, but I love also to express myself in Product, Editorial and concept realization Photography, I like a twisted sense of humor. Most people don‘t understand why I do everything, which means to me if I would have been a painter I would have painted everything that inspires me.

(if you´ve ever wondered where your dreams come from you look around that‘s where they are made).
