Southeast London-born photographer Nadine Ijewere’s work has appeared in the likes of i-D, the Wall Street Journal, and Vogue, for whom she became the first woman of color to shoot a cover. She primarily photographs on the subject of identity and diversity, inspired by her Nigerian and Jamaican heritage. While at school, Ijewere took up photography among subjects of physics, chemistry, biology, and maths. However, drawn to the creative field, she went on to study photography at UAL’s London College of Fashion. After graduating, Ijewere started working for an interior design company in Chelsea Harbour Design Centre, shooting her images in her spare time.
She has also worked with film and created campaigns for the likes of Stella McCartney, Valentino, Selfridges, and The Gap. Ijewere is represented by CLM Agency.
