Raised in Zambia of Italian father and Swedish mother, Nadia has a background in Psychology (BSc) and Health Research (Msc) with a focus on Stigma and Risk. She has held research fellowships at the University College of London and spent 2 years working for a strategic research consultancy firm. She now works as a freelance reportage/portrait photographer. Nadia recently completed a commission for Art on the Underground. She is currently working with the British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR). Past projects include collaborations with The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund and the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in Cote D’Ivoire. A nation still emerging from the legacy of civil war, Cote d’Ivoire has, since 2003, been one of 15 “focus countries” to receive funding from the largest single-disease health programme ever launched by one nation. The photographs chart the effect of this unprecedented intervention on the lives of local communities, providing a chronicle of a society facing up to its deep-seated stigmatisation of the HIV/AIDS. Nadia has been involved in a wide variety of projects dealing with asylum seekers, refugees and BME youths in the UK. She is a founding member of Eyes Wide Open, a community partnership project running participatory photography projects. The project is aimed at facilitating creativity, innovative thought and talent in young people. She is also involved in delivering outreach and educational projects with The Photographers Gallery
