About the Artist:
Nika Ostby is a Florida based photographer focusing on conceptual portraiture. She is fascinated by the redemptive quality of the photograph. In a society caught by the crosshairs of idealism and reality, portraiture provides a much-needed sense of control.
Nika's Personal Statement:
"They don’t have perfect proportions. They don’t seem themselves the way I see them; unique, special, photogenic. Through pictures people can see just how beautiful they are. That is why I take pictures. I feel the need to show them and hopefully convince them that they are beautiful; on the inside and outside". As C.S Lewis once said, “What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing. It also depends on what sort of person you are.” I want to share with the world the view from where I stand. Photography allows me to express the beauty I never fail to see.
