NICELAND, NICKI The new year’s theme is the need for people to stand together.
In February, NIKLIS and I collaborated on a series of photos documenting our journey to the airport to celebrate our 20th year in Boston, and NIKIKI’s portrait of NICOLE in Boston is one of our favorites.
The other piece that NIKLO, my cat, made me proud this year was her work of Black Lives.
In October, NICELS work was exhibited at a gallery in Los Angeles, where she worked as an artist and a curator.
She was nominated for an award for Excellence in Contemporary Photography by the American Society of Portraitists.
She is also a member of the New England Council of Arts.
This year, NICOELS work also received the Whitney Biennial Award for Best Photography in a Biennial, which honors outstanding work of photography from the Whitney, the Museum, and the Smithsonian Institution.
