Daria Lou Nakov is a lens-based mix media artist with a background in architectural design and photography. In her works she doesn’t capture spaces but recreates her emotional and physical relation to them. The place of media both analog and digital are at the center of her practice, together and separately.

Her abstract imagery gives the viewer freedom of interpretation and indirectly questions the need for realistic representations. Her image creation combines various analog and digital technics to create new forms of image making, the analog is the physical and the digital the imagined.

Through this, she imagines how to represent and recreate in the visual world, the spaces that surrounds us and find new means of image creation. By creating abstract images, she wants to take photography outside of the world of realistic representation and questions its place in our society of constant image consumption.

Since 2016, her works have been part of exhibitions and book fairs in Europe. Such as The Uncut festival at The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in 2018 & 2019,  'Auspuff' at Looiergracht gallery Amsterdam in 2019, and in June 2023 in Munich at the Pinakotek der Modern for Der Greif's 15th year anniversary event.
