Of Ukrainian descent, but born in the USSR in Latvia in 1984, Nadya Zim moved to San Francisco, California in 2008. She has a MBA from the University of Latvia. However, from an early age she dreamed to be involved with the arts. The beauty of California and other places she visited (especially Chile's Patagonia) inspired her to focus more seriously on photography as a way of communicating her personal interaction with these spaces.
Nadya considers herself a “global soul” with a heart free from society's stereotypes. She aims to communicate the love, peace and light of our endless universe. Nadya’s work is meant to inspire people everywhere to connect with our environment and to contemplate the universe - why it’s here, why we’re here and how we can keep it unspoiled and beautiful. Each photograph is an attempt to remind us about the importance of connection with our inner selves, as well as the world around us not through technology, but through our five senses.
