Nicola and Manuel is the encounter of two synergies that finds their expression through photography.

Intrigued by the many facets of contemporary constructs of identity and as non-binary artists they celebrate their multiplicity, coquetting with standards and familiar mind structures and allowing space for plurality and paradox.
Searching a sense of play with self-expression and ordinary dimensions of the everyday, their work constitutes a sensual and at times deviant place of narration, in which binary views are questioned, expectations based on appearance and gender are suspended, and everything coalesces, innocent and tempting, true and false, candid and performative.

Notable collaborations include: AnOther, WSJ, Études, Zadig et Voltaire, Giada, Transe Paris, Lampoon, Rimowa.



Based in Paris/Milan
