Nairy Shahinian’s artistic practice approaches photography as a never-ending process of discovery. Nairy often employs experimental techniques as investigative tools, allowing her to intimately document her immediate surroundings and experiences. Her knowledge of the medium developed at a young age in the studio of her late father, Vahe, an established photographer. She earned a Professional Photography Diploma from the New York Institute of Photography in 2008. In recent years Nairy has created several photographic series that have been presented at international art spaces and events.
