SHORT VITA

There is an unmistakable aesthetic in the visual language of Nina Papiorek. Her photographs transport us into a world between fine art street and urban landscape photography.

With a focus on architecture, graphic elements and line work, Nina’s images convey the impression of loneliness and being lost in the urban environment. A minimalist approach runs through all of her work like a common thread, which is underlined by the fact that she uses black and white without exception.

Nina is an internationally award-winning photographer whose work has been featured in a large number of photography magazines worldwide. She has contributed to several book projects and is the author of online photography courses.

Nina is also part of „Soul of Street“, the German magazine for street photography, and co-founder of the Düsseldorf street collective „Dorf Collective“.
