Amarachi Nnoli

Amarachi Nnoli is an art and documentary photographer whose work explores her journey through life using photography to examine her relationships with self, siblings, family, friends, and environment, and how they are shaped for good or bad.

Inspired by The Beatles’ 1969 single, Here Comes The Sun, Amarachi’s piece represents a personal manifestation of “dulcius ex asperis“ – life getting “sweeter after difficulties”.

This piece is a reflection on her teenage years, and how far she has come as a young adult now navigating life after letting go of anxiety and social awkwardness, through years of self-therapy. In the photo, the model is bathed in warm light, face settled in contentment, a general feeling of finally being at peace after seemingly never-ending turmoil.
