Hello everybody, today I’m with Nicole. Can you introduce yourself to our readers?
Hello everybody my name is Nicole Pagan I’m a 22 year old fashion and portrait photographer. A creative soul that enjoy’s capturing visions inspired by my imagination & dreams. I pretend to escape from the real world every time I have my camera on my hands, It’s my kind of freedom, how I express myself. With my camera I use reality to create my own. In my work you will find an image of what escaping from the real world and entering to mine might look like. I love to capture emotions not moments and combine the female form with nature. I love the feeling of being able to execute my visions and see that image in my mind appear in my camera.
I traveled all the way from the island of Puerto Rico to Boston, Mass to pursue my dreams as a photographer. With my photography, I want to follow my heart and create art that can change how people see the world and themselves.

A lot of your photos are set in the woods. Do you think there is a specific reason for this?
It is, I find the femenine body and nature so sensitive and so a like they just look so beautiful together.
What can you tell us about this work? How did it come up?
I wanted to do like a “Never ending” summer series and I wanted to incorporate different elements like antlers and the dream catcher because they are dreaming and wishing for the endless summer.
