Nadia Wicker is a true trailblazer in the photography department. She is constantly experimenting with new techniques others find difficult to replicate, but more importantly, she doesn’t use those gimmicky tricks as a safety net for producing less-than-magnificent images. It is for that reason that she gets featured on various online publications on a regular basis.

In this particular series, entitled ‘Valkea,’ Nadia Wicker alters self-portraits with watercolor-like filters to achieve visuals reminiscent of paintings. Couple that with creative blurring, overlapping and other photographic techniques and you have an ethereal collection that’s pure euphoria to the eyes.

Curiously, many of Wicker’s works are self-portraits, yet she looks different in every series. It seems she is ever-changing not only professionally, but in her personal aesthetic choices as well.
