Nina Large is a photographer and journalist from the North East of England. Whilst she has an interest in documentary work, over the years Nina has come to specialise in music and portrait photography, mainly covering gigs for bands in the North East.
Though using digital technology when working with clients, Nina prefers to use analogue technology, specifically Polaroid, when working on personal projects.
During her time at Leeds Beckett University, as well as working as a photographer at the ARIAS and Deer Shed Festival in 2018, she has been commissioned to photograph private events and has had work published in articles in the local press and online publications.
After graduating, Nina would like to further explore her passion for storytelling and pursue a career as a freelance photographer.
Important Places showcases places around Sunderland City Centre that are personally important to the people featured. She considers that the portraits show that the simplest of places are integral to people’s lives, and the beauty they see in these ‘Important Places’ shows the strong emotional connections her subjects can have to places in their hometown.
