"The urge to convert experience into a group of words that are in a grammatical relation to one another is the most basic and ongoing impulse of my life."
Nikaela Peters forms sentences in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Her work focuses on themes of season, religion, history and ceremony. While she and her husband are prolific with their Pentax k1000, she is confident that words, properly organized, better stir the imagination than images captured on film. The cliche is backwards. A good sentence is worth a thousand pictures any day.
For Vol.4, Nikaela collaborated with Tec and Chelsea Petaja on a piece about lakes called “Familiar Shores”. Nikaela recently contributed an essay titled "Eating Reverently" in Vol. 6. For more of Nikaela’s work, hop on over to her blog, Rose & Crown.
