Kirsten Nicolaisen is a self-taught photographer and journalist based in Brooklyn, New York.
Her work largely comprises street and travel photography, and she particularly enjoys documenting life on the beaches of New York and New Jersey. She’s driven by a quest to capture moments of stillness in the chaos of everyday life, and aims to evoke a sense of nostalgia and familiarity in her images.
Kirsten grew up in a hot, arid suburb of Los Angeles, California, and spent several years in the Pacific Northwest before moving to New York in 2018. She holds a journalism degree from the University of Oregon and — in addition to photography — has spent the last decade working as an audience journalist, social media expert, and radio host.
