Born in Lisbon, Portugal to a half-Mozambican family, Nadia always felt inspired by multicultural environments. Her unique upbringing, along with her grandfather's love and knowledge of photography, has had a true creative impact on her work. Cultural heritage and identity are the heart of Nadia's interests. Using them as the backdrop for my pictures, she creates compelling narratives by using vibrant and complex colour schemes where women are mostly at centre stage. Nadia is London based but will always be deeply connected with her birthplace Lisbon. I’ve been working with some amazing clients which include Refinery29, Farfetch, Waterwipes, Schwarzkopf, Henkel, Keash Agency, Both Paris and more. With work published on Vogue UK, Wonderland, Noctis, Kaltblut, Pap, Picton, TMRW and more. Please check out my work on @nadiacorreiaphotography

- PortucalensePortugal means revolution, flowers, Fado, saudade, beaches, fishmongers, the countryside; and the water that cleanses your soul. My roots belong to me, however far they may have spread. --- Fotógrafa, mulher, emigrante - vivo fora de Portugal há mais de dez anos. Não me apercebi o quanto me tinha distanciado da minha cultura para me aproximar daquela que me recebeu. Durante este tempo afastei-me das minhas raízes, tornei-me mais maleável, absorvi mais de uma outra língua. Dez anos depois, vo
