Michaela Nagyidaiová (*1996, Bratislava) is a documentary photographer based between London and Bratislava. Due to her interest in personal stories and projects, she often works with themes that rethink the notions of home, migration, the aftermath of conflicts and family roots.
The work she photographs examines historically significant landscapes that have over time become forgotten or hidden in our contemporary life. This way, the intention is to revive the histories, discuss them and relate them to our present-day issues.
Michaela's work is frequently a combination of documentary photography, archival imagery or text. The ongoing theme, she has been working on is about the effects of the Greek Civil War, which took place from 1946-1949 and impacted a large number of individuals, including her family members. It also delves into the influence that the conflict continues to have even today.
She is one of two members of a platform In Conversation With, dedicated to photography conversations and showcasing artists around the world.
