Nicola Dracoulis is a portrait and social documentary photographer based in Melbourne & London. A graduate of the London College of Communication’s MA Photojournalism, she has produced work in the UK, Brazil and Australia. Dracoulis captures the fleeting subtleties of human behaviour, the dynamic exertions of performance and creativity, as well as the warmth and strength of communal life. She loves it most when her camera helps to challenge widespread negative attitudes and beliefs about others.
Viver no Meio do Barulho was a featured exhibition in Head On Photography Festival 2014.
