Amar was born in British Guiana, South America. In his late-teens he ventured into the wider, world-relocating to the United States; over thirty years ago he holidayed on Grand Cayman, fell in love with the Island, and settled there, where he lives in George Town. He is the father of four children and a proud grandfather of six.
Amar is self taught and for as long as he can remember, he has been taking photographs. His early inspiration came from paintings in the traditional and modern styles. He often exhibits in the Cayman Islands.
In 2012 & 2013 Amar was awarded 2nd place for his works “Caffeine Effect” & “Stellar Eclipse” respectively, in the Conceptual Category of the Cayfest Competition hosted by the Cayman National Cultural Foundation; these two pieces can be viewed here in his Conceptual gallery.
His two dimensional collage “copy, cut, paste” was exhibited in “The Art of Assemblage” at The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands and his work “Tao Chi” in the “Panorama of Latin American” at the Contemporary Arts Gallery, Montreal, Canada and can be viewed in his Rust Art Gallery.
His work entitled “Change” is hung in the Gallery at the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman on 4th July 2013 to date and can be viewed here in his Abstract gallery.
His work has been featured prominently on almanac publications in the Cayman Islands and in private collections on Grand Cayman, U.S.A., Canada, U.K. and Italy.

I am self taught in fine art photography. My aim is to share my work with wide audiences.
I integrate a lifetime appreciation and exposure to art, guided by intuition, instinct, observation, and personal perspective.
My inspirations comes from the works of the Great Masters, nature, theatre, movies, pop culture, and my surroundings.
When I travel I make it a point to visit the local galleries and I am a huge fan of Monet, Matisse, Degas, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Ansel Adams among others.
I love minimalism and the beauty in nature, and I find self-expression in abstract and conceptuals.
Always scouting locations for shoots as I go about my daily tasks, I am camera-ready to capture serendipitous moments.
For the majority of my photographs, I utilize natural light or whatever artificial illumination is present; I seldom uses flash, and I balance the light and shadows in my mind’s eye, in post production.
'Art is not what you see but what you make others see' Edgar Degas
