Lena Nian is a creative artist and photographer. She is also the co-founder and co-producer of Fashion Weekend Gambia, which is the biggest annual fashion event in the country.
She lives and works in Gambia but she grew up in Sweden, where she studied fine arts and photography before moving to London where she did her Bachelor of Arts in Design for advertising and where she also refined her photographic skills.
Her focus is on portraits, be it through fashion photography, shoots for artists, different projects. She always strives to capture the essence of the person she shoots. She wants us to feel something when we look at image, to get a flavor of who that person is.
