Photographer Spotlight: Nikki Graziano | Found Functions
Nikki's talents and passion in photography and mathematics enable her to see beyond the typical compositional associations one might make, deep into the hidden and ever-present mathematical forms that surround us.
I reached out to her on the inspiration for the series - she tells me
" I was driving after a calculus class and just started seeing in tree lines all the curves I had just spent 3 hours drawing in my notes."
Her instance of inspiration for the series reminds of an archetypal film scene, where a free spirited character is driving down an open road, with their arm out the window gently oscillating up and down against the wind, leaving the invisible etching of a sine wave behind them.
Nikki's has more galleries on her website, including a compelling set of portraiture which, much like a math problem, takes on a static yet dynamic form with the urge for interpretation.
