Nyla is both an award winning poet and photographer, she treats the pen as if she is creating something visual and the camera as if she's writing a story, her unique gift of seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary, pushes her to find ways of photographing the things she can see in her mind, in a way that the world can experience it too, 'It's just like writing, only I have to find a way to do with a single image what I can do with a thousand words.'
Nyla is known for her extremely emotional and impactful images, it is impossible to experience her work and not be effected in some manner. Bringing light to darkness and darkness to light, her passion is for black and white, low-light photography, saying, '...it lets the viewer use their imagination, to fill in the blanks, in a way color images cannot do.' Nyla teaches Expanding Creative Vision Workshops for photographers.
Nyla Alisia's photography has been published worldwide in journals, newspapers, magazines, on-line websites, as book illustrations, and cover art.
