Nico is a Vancouver-based photographer, born and raised in Romania. Her interest in photography began in her first year of University while studying photojournalism. She then started exploring different types of photography in order to find her own style and expand her portfolio. "To me the creative aspect and vision behind a photograph matters more than technicalities do. For example, many books will teach you about proper exposure, and it is definitely important to know how to achieve it, but so many times I found myself drawn by the mystery of a purposely underexposed subject. When it comes to photography, pushing the technical boundaries and breaking the rules is what leads to discovering new creative perspectives."
