About Nikki Gardner
Nikki Gardner first started making photographs when she was 10 years old, and has been in love with the medium ever since. Her work explores narrative traces of memory, space, and time. Photographs surface as undercurrents of both truth and fiction, of experience and possibility. They are left to clarify, interpret, and reinvent.
