I saw Nadia Sablin’s MFA thesis exhibition Together and Alone over a year ago, but still her photographs are engraved in my mind. This is a true distinction in such a highly visual driven society. I look at hundreds of images a day.. but it’s the ones that come back to me, that persistently invade my mind and force me to return to them that solidify a photographer’s place. That for me, is Nadia Sablin. Maybe I am a tad bias, maybe it’s the incredibly intense photograph below of my favorite photo professor or the charged image of a former classmate, Eddie with his mother. Though looking at her other work I realize it’s not the fact that I know the people. It’s in the eyes of the strangers as well.
She currently lives and works in Brooklyn and you must go check out her other work now. here!
