Michaela Nagyidaiová (*1996, Bratislava) is a Slovak documentary photographer based in Bratislava. Her work analyses the connection between landscape and memory, the aftermath of socialism in Slovakia and Eastern & Central EU, as well as identity, and ancestral heritage.
Documenting places, people, or objects that she has a connection is what drives her to take photographs. Her projects examine historically significant landscapes that have over time become forgotten or hidden in our contemporary society. This way, the intention is to revive the past, discuss it, and draw connections to our present-day events or issues.
She graduated from MA in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication in 2019.
Michaela is a member of Women Photograph since 2021.
