As a little girl, Nicole Dreon didn’t dream about white picket fences and fairy-tale weddings. Instead, she spent countless hours fantasizing about far-way places like Colombia and Kenya. As an adult, her passion for other cultures first led her to writing and then photography.
As a photojournalist and writer, she’s covered stories about women boxers in Uganda, a special surfing community in Senegal, and an all-women’s rally car race in Morocco, just to name a few.
Using her camera to capture unique shots of humanity all over the world, she frequently travels solo to remote places like the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Cambodia. “When you’re alone, especially as a woman,” says Dreon, “it suggests to people that you trust them.”
That kind of trust—between subject and photographer—is important to Dreon, and it reflects in her work. Her photography collection, “Solo”, offers a glimpse into Dreon’s travels and the people and places she’s discovered along the way.
