Nicole Maria Winkler was born in Austria and moved to London at eighteen to study photography at the University of the Arts London.
Her work explores ideas of reality and representation. Central to Nicole’s practice is the exploration and subversive notions of femininity and performance for the camera.
Focusing mostly on staged photography (as opposed to realism), Nicole is drawn to constructing scenes and incorporating visual metaphors. These light hearted, humorous nods to underlying concepts run through her work.
Nicole’s contributes to some of the World’s most prestigious publications including: British Vogue and the luxury Houses of Dior and Valentino.
Nicole is currently based between London and Paris.
