Biography

Nadia creates photographed details made on location which are then layered to form a tableaux of collected complex scenes within a scene, together they convey a sense of place and time. Often grappling with ideas of idealism and paradise, the bright images become multifaceted tableaux, combining unexpected objects, settings and colours to construct uncanny depictions of desirable destinations. The original photographs disappear from documentary single imagery toward a more painterly poetic interpreted view of the world.
