Nicole Maria Winkler

The work of photographer Nicole Maria Winkler explores ideas of reality and representation. Subversive notions of femininity and performance are central to her practice. Nicole contributes to some of the world’s most prestigious publications including British Vogue, 032c, Dazed, Interview and V. She has collaborated with Burberry, Calvin Klein, Dior and Valentino.

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 was born in Austria and moved to London at 18 to study photography at the University of the Arts London. She is currently based between London and Paris. Follow Nicole Maria Winkler on Instagram.
