NANA YAW ODURO

FR

NANA YAW ODURO est un photographe Ghanéen né en 1994 et basé à Accra.

Il est diplômé de la classe de commerce de l’Université du Ghana en mai 2017 et a commencé à photographier en 2015. Les photos de Nana Yaw Oduro proposent des autoportraits fictifs dans lesquels ses modèles sont comme des acteurs, jouant un rôle biographique. Nana Yaw Oduro est, ainsi, le metteur en scène de ses propres émotions lors de la performance d’une séance photo.

La composition picturale aide à lire ces histoires personnelles : les personnages sont individualisés et se détachent de leur environnement. L’espace de chaque image est défini sans être trop précis : un bout de plage, un morceau de terre craquelé, un mur bleu… cela pourrait être n’importe où et en même temps nulle part. Suscitant la curiosité du spectateur, ces captures semblent hors du temps. Elles incarnent un désir de liberté dont la seule limite existante est l’imagination du photographe.

NANA YAW ORDURO is a Ghanaian photographer born in 1994 based in Accra.

He graduated from the University of Ghana’s Business School in May 2017 and began taking photographs in 2015. Nana Yaw Oduro’s photographic style revolves around creating fictional self-portraits in which models serve as actors playing a biographical role. Consequently, Nana Yaw Oduro is the director of his own emotions during a photoshoot.

His pictorial compositions provide a glimpse into his life experiences. The characters are individualized and detached from their environment, as each scene is depicted with a level of ambiguity, allowing for interpretation – a small glimpse of a beach, some disturbed soil, a blue wall… These elements could be anywhere, but simultaneously nowhere. These seemingly timeless snapshots arouse the viewer’s curiosity and embody a desire for freedom, in which the only boundary is the boundless imagination of the photographer.
