the (brief) history of Nihilsentimentalgia


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 undergrad 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 writes about artists and issues that interest her.

Sofia is a lecturer in several photographic disciplines and Nihilsentimentalgia now works as the fundamental resource of information for her students.

She just finished a PHD on ‘Authenticity’, so don’t be surprised if posts about authenticity-related issues happen to come your way.

She is also founder and editor @ Propeller, a magazine dedicated to photographic expression.
