About Me

Nahila was given a camera as a gift from her father at the age of 11 and has never put it down. She uses an SLR with 125 ASA film, although periodically finds herself fixated with the polaroid or compact digital. Her subjects share a distance with their own environment and with the audience. It is a distance that through her eye allows us a quiet understanding not only of their reality but also of our own.

“I love to travel to beautiful places, vast spaces and mad mad cities…Paris, Alaska, Tripoli and New York are among my favorites. I walk through the streets and spaces not ever looking for moments to be made into memories, but sometimes I find them…some happy, some sad, but all tell a story.

I love to capture people’s dreams and realities…falling in love, stolen memories, lost innocence, awesome landscapes…they all can happen. They are my dreams and realities.”
