Collection: Nichole Sobecki

Through documentary photography, Nichole Sobecki brings attention to humanity’s fraught, intimate, and ultimately unbreakable connection to the natural world. Born in New York, she has lived in Nairobi for the past decade. In 2016 Nichole began her body of work Where Our Land Was, which investigates the human consequences of significant environmental change in Somalia.

She is currently exploring the vital role the Congo Basin plays in the ecological balance of our planet as a National Geographic Explorer. Nichole’s photography has been recognized by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights prize, the Leica Oskar Barnack Award, Pictures of the Year, the One World Media Awards, and the Alexandra Boulat Award for Photojournalism, among others. Nichole is represented internationally by the photo agency VII, and is a member of Women Photograph and Everyday Africa.
