Nihilsentimentalgia is Sofia Silva’s web-based platform about contemporary photography and visual discourses. The project started in 2008, when Sofia was concluding her Photography degree and felt the need to start an online database for theoretical and visual resources. During the following years it evolved into a place where she promotes the work of authors that interest her.
Sofia is a lecturer in several photographic disciplines and Nihilsentimentalgia now works as the fundamental resource of information for her students.
Sofia just finished a PHD thesis on ‘Authenticity’, so don’t be surprised if posts about authenticity-related issues happen to come your way.
She is also editor @ Propeller, a magazine dedicated to photographic expression, that is just about to be launched.
