Nadja Ellinger is a visual artist interested in the oral tale as a way to explore new narratives offside the path. She was born in 1993 in a small medieval village in the middle of Germany. Spending most time in the forest and books she fell in love with fairy tales, folklore and storytelling. After completing her bachelor’s degree in photography at the University of Applied Science in Munich, she studied for her MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art in London from 2018 to 2020.
Nadja’s work was exhibited and published in the UK, US, Italy, United Arab Emirates, Denmark, Germany, and France. Most recently she exhibited at the Copenhagen Photofestival 2021, OpenWalls Arles 2021 and the Ashurst Art Prize 2021 in London for which she is currently shortlisted. She worked on commissions by clients such as Vogue USA, the British Design Museum and more.
