Yesterday I came across this tremendously talented teenage photographer when I was browsing the pages of one of my favorite blogs, The Glamourai. Kelly is an amazing curator and she has such a keen eye for finding and sharing beautiful fashion and art and jewels and photography. I fell into the abyss, like I often do, pointing and clicking, studying, admiring. After taking the time to look at Nirrimi's work for myself I have yet another new favorite photographer.
After seeing her work and spending some time reading her blog, I find her young and a bit naive but also wise and incredibly thoughtful. She is 18 and she is profound and provocative - I love the freshness of her photographs and her writing. I also love that her photographs tell stories that perhaps only an older person could tell - she seems to me to be a a young, old soul.
Her blog is aptly named We Live Young. She's fantastic.
