NIKA DE CARLO
Documenting youth is important to Nika because it is a subject that is passionate, never-ending, and fresh. She sees boys and girls longing to be free, to be loved, and to experience the wholeness of living. Nika's work relies on the environments that her subjects call home - their secret places where they are most accepted and safe. She chooses to document this subject to define the meaning of immunity, discovery, relationships, and friendships.
