The Black Dance By Terna Iwar, Photography.


Terna Iwar is a Nigerian born fashion and fine art photographer currently residing in Abuja. His artistic practice centers around a deep appreciation of the human condition and its ever transitionary nature. Drawing on his early exposure to the Tiv dance narrative and later immersion in western art history, his work never the less betrays a constant de-contextualization of themes and issues.

Terna Iwar studied Business Computing and Digital Media at the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, Ireland, where he was exposed to photography for the first time. Falling headlong into this alternate mode of expression he went on to complete a diploma in photography at the New York Film Academy.

He is the Founder and Artistic Director of Bantu Studio, a full service photography studio and media production house and is also Co-Founder of Fashion Business Africa, an online publication delivering data driven, analytical and opinionated information on the fashion industry in Africa.


Retro Africa is super cool, hard working and of course has great artists in their portfolio.
