Folk Tales

As part of a year-long project, Nimke documented regional folktales by traveling to spots associated with the tales, finding local people willing to be recorded as they read the stories aloud, and capturing them and the areas in photographs. This multi medial project was part of her Adobe Creative Residency.

Illustrations by Jonathan Vermersch

These images are a selection of works focusing on visual metaphors and surreal ideas. They’re an experimentation, some of them carry a message, but others are only sketch playfulness without any other intent. I like to play with symbols and create weird and intriguing imagery with my language. They’re good ways to get an idea across, and I’m still learning how to make it work, trying to keep it as simple as possible.

Gold Soundz

These images were created by a much younger, barely recognizable version of myself. The last drawing I made was in September 1994 when I was 29 years old. At that point I just stopped drawing.

Under The Storm

Every once in a while, in Madeira, a storm reminds us that it’s a semi-tropical island. Every one runs to the ocean to see the big waves. I go to the mountains to see the result of entropy. Fog fills the landscape, teasing curiosity and imagination, what’s not to love.

A House, A Home

In the series, A House, A Home, I isolate ubiquitous household objects as a way to begin to investigate traditions of domestic American life. My observations are rooted in my own personal indulgences, expectations, and questions, as well as how I see myself existing within this larger system. I'm interested in revealing some of the complex layers of this shared cultural vernacular through pairing the familiar with the unexpected and creating anticipation that is never quite resolved. The interventions and style of capture re-contextualize the objects as a way to challenge traditional domesticity and to pose questions about convention, consumption, and convenience as staples of American popular culture.

Inland Madeira

There is another side to an Island know for it’s good weather and welcoming people. A place in penumbra, between Europe and Africa, between the XXI’s century and an older way of life.

Plant Love

I photograph plants that appear soft and gentle, but still have a powerful image. I also explore different shapes and forms that I see throughout nature and try to present the plants as if they were growing wild in a jungle, lush with vegetation.
