Inspicio Arts, our sister art publication platform, published a video conversationwith self-taught photographer, Nadia Huggins. Huggins has developed a unique way of merging nature with the human body in her photography. Her concepts are primarily characterized by observations of everyday life in the Caribbean.
Huggins was born in Trinidad and Tobago and grew up in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, where she is currently based. Her photographs have been exhibited in Canada, USA, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Barbados, Ethiopia, Guadeloupe, France, and the Dominican Republic. Her work is currently being featured at The Betsy Hotel in South Beach.
“A lot of my practice is kind of obsessed with creating an image of multiple objects that merge to become something else, like playing with the mind a little bit, and making you question if this thing really does exist in the environment,” said Huggins.
Huggins wants to send compelling messages to the world through many different forms of expression, including photography. Many of her images are made in the sea because it is important to her to raise awareness of marine debris. Huggins also co-founded ARC Magazine and One Drop in the Ocean, which are publications that shine a light on these environmental issues.
