From the murder of Pamela Anderson at a house party in the middle of nowhere to wax-faced women dying to achieve beauty ideals, Nadia presents the female form “in all shapes and sizes”. But not as a critique, since she doesn’t get involved in judgement; she basically wants that “each image suggests that a story is about to unfold”. To achieve so, she has jumped into strangers’ backyards dressed as a rabbit, collected badges from store workers, and even lived a near-death experience. Recently, she has presented Not A Retrospective
, a massive solo exhibition at La Térmica in Málaga (Spain), and is currently working on finishing her photo book of one hundred nude women. We talk to her in-between cities about beauty standards, Danny Trejo, and where to get the best cheeseburger in Los Angeles.
