|As an artist and photographer, Nicol travels the world in search of stories that evoke images of truth and the art of being human.|
A love of photography and the wisdom of the indigenous has taken her to work as a photojournalist in Burma, Cambodia, Laos, India, Nepal, Thailand, Belize, Costa Rica, Kenya, Morocco, Rwanda, Peru, Indonesia ,Timor Leste and Haiti. Her current documentary project is focused on The Hadzabe of Tanzania, one of the last remaining tribes of hunter-gatherers in the world.
An avid environmentalist advocating for social justice, she aligns her work to serve numerous non-profit organizations including St. Jude's hospital, Global Service Corps. of Tanzania, International Fund for Animal Welfare, The Millinium Village of Rwanda, World Neighbors and
The Cine Institute of Haiti.
For the past ten years, Nicol has been influenced and informed by her time spent with the Indigenous and continues to engage in a long term photographic exploration into humanity's relationship to culture, the wild, sustainability of the planet and how best we can, collectively, navigate a way out of the disease of disconnection that plagues modernity.
Her upcoming exhibit ' Between Two Worlds' is meant to subvert separatist thinking by poetically reflecting back the destruction of life amongst the speed of our industrialized society.
Nicol aspires to push the dimensions of visual possibility, personal meaning and metaphorical potential while questioning the boundaries of rule.
