ABOUT NYEMA DROMA
Nyema Droma is a photographer born and currently based in Lhasa, Tibet. Director and photographer of Hima Ālaya Art Studio.
After having received a BA degree in Fashion Photography and Styling at the London College of Fashion, Droma moved back to Lhasa to open her own photography studio,Hima Ālaya Art Studio. Nyema is one of the most exciting talents to emerge from a new wave of young contemporary Tibetan artists. Through her stylistic portraits, Nyema manages to capture Tibet’s unique contemporary identity. These portraits provide insights into how traditional cultural heritage blends with society's transition through modernity and progression into post-modernity.
Exclusively working with local Tibetans, she creates very authentic portraits of people who are trying to find their way in the globalised and modernised ‘new’ Tibet.
“Photography has become the most important thing in my life. Through doing projects, meeting interesting people, and taking pictures with and of them, I’ve learned so much of what goes beyond the camera.”
Her photographs have been published in Tibet Geographic, Majestic Disorder Magazine, Prism Magazine and Croco Magazine.
