Nádia Maria / Poetic Photography
Nádia Maria / Poetic Photography

Born in 1984 (by fate, being born on World Photography Day), Nádia Maria is a Brazilian photographer based in Bauru, São Paulo, who started to photograph as a child at the age of 7, by taking photographs of her dolls.

Over the years she explored photography, and has studied at Senac school in Brazil. Her relationship with the camera and the images she captures were born in her childhood, but she became even more involved in her youth.

Her photographs stem from her own reflections, from her desire to communicate and create freely and became a personal journal of her innermost thoughts and emotions; a window into her subconscious, letting her inspirations find her and delving into the depths of the human psyche.

Nádia Maria describes her work as her poetry, the photos as the poems.

“Some people use photography to tell stories, others invent stories through it, I write poems.” (Nadia Maria for National Geographic)

Like good poetry, each photo extends beyond Nádia’s own life and explores universal themes, such as the melancholy, the void, love, postpartum depression, the constant deconstruction and reconstruction of ourselves, and so on. With her ethereal works she explores the intricacies of the subconscious mind with compositions that arouse her viewers into “song, rhyme, and verse” to set catharsis in motion.

Her poetic and unique works has taken the world by storm, with numerous publications and exhibitions by many countries and has picked up the attention of publications like National Geographic, Vanity Fair and Vogue. She was also considered one of the masters of photography of the new generation by Fashion Industry Broadcast.

Nádia Maria’s images convey a plethora of emotions with dreamlike qualities and make us feel like we are floating in and out of consciousness. And as herself says, her photographs tells a story already finished, which we still don’t know the beginning and the end. Nádia Maria’s artworks are represented by Art+Commerce (NY), Vogue (Italy) and The Print Atelier (Montreal).
