Nina Girolamo is an accomplished artist dedicated to using life experience as a form of exploration. She has had an extensive career in equine photography, spanning from the shores of California across to the marshes in the South of France. Every collection has begun with her appreciation for these beautiful creatures that have roamed the world for centuries.
Born in Long Island, New York, she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Long Island University, with a concentration in photography. She continued to pursue art in all different forms, graduating from the prestigious Parsons School of Design, as well as the New York School of Interior Design.
She began her photographic career on the back of a motorcycle, perusing the West Coast of the United States. It is here that she began to fall in love with not only the beauty of the sprawling lands, but the animals that inhabit them. This pivotal moment is what helped shaped her career in equine photography, and began her long span relationship with the souls of the horses. Photographing horses in both captivity and the wild, Nina has been able to uniquely express the untold story of each horse throughout her collections.
Through this work, Nina has become aware of the hardships of these animals as well. Because of this, she is a supporter of the non-profit horse rescue, Equine Outreach, which facilitates in the rescue, rehabilitation, and permanent placement of abused, neglected and unwanted horses.
