Nilmini De Silva

Nilmini is a ‘Grand Master’ of the Australian Photography Society (APS) and a national and international award-winning photographer. She has also obtained honours from both the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and Federation of Photographic Artist (FIAP).


Born in Sri Lanka, Nilmini now calls Australia home, after spending 9-years living in California and a year in South Korea. She has since lived, worked, and spent time on all 7 continents and finds it has given her a unique ability to connect with places and people of all cultures.


Photography is Nil’s happy place, her bliss. It is the medium through which she expresses herself and raises awareness about the issues she cares about. In 2014 she authored ‘Fate or Destiny, Living Life with Passion’, a book of stories and images that aim to inspire people to make conscious choices in life. Nil has launched a number of solo & collaborative photographic exhibitions including an exhibition at the HeadOn 2015 Photo Festival in conjunction with Hornsby Shire Council.


Her curiosity to explore a genre she had not tried before brought her to aerial abstracts during the Covid lockdowns and it is fast becoming that place where she is crafting her own style. Nil finds that photographing the landscape from an aerial perspective is quite other-worldly and helps her create unique images.
