Michaela Nagyidaiová (*1996, Bratislava) is a Slovak documentary photographer based between London and Bratislava. She is interested in discovering personal stories, analysing the connection between landscape and memory, the impact of socialism in Slovakia and Eastern Europe, as well as identity and ancestral heritage.
Documenting places, people, or objects that she has a connection is what drives her to take photographs. Often working with memories, such as visualising someone else’s or her own memories through images, archival materials as well as text. Her work examines historically significant landscapes that have over time become forgotten or hidden in our contemporary life. This way, the intention is to revive the past, discuss it, and relate it to our present-day issues.
Michaela is a member of Shutter Hub and her portfolio can now be found there as well, have a look here.
Similarly, she is one of two members of a platform In Conversation With, dedicated to photography conversations and creating opportunities for international artists.
