Hi there! My name is Nikki van de Poel (1988), a film photographer based in the Netherlands. 

Since 2015, I have been exploring photography as a medium to express myself. Through my work I examine themes of femininity, love, loneliness and traveling. In my work I love to play with natural light, It's amazing how fast light can change and create new shapes in a matter of seconds. 

I love telling stories through my photography, I create a lot of my work for personal healing. I have been sharing those stories with the world for a little while now and am finding a lot of comfort and satisfaction in helping (and being helped by) other people with their struggles / insecurities by connecting with them through my photography. It's a magical feeling.

Last year (2018) I released my first photography book called 'Americanalog' - thanks to all you sweet people it is already sold out ♥ (spoiler alert: I'm releasing a new book later this year!)
