Nicole Cullinan

Writer Photographer Architecture, A Poetic Point of View

Nicole has an established career in the architecture and arts industry in content creation, photography and writing. Her studio has the privilege of working with many prominent Australian creatives. She enjoys discovering what makes the architect or artists work unique, with a passion for place-making and the built environment. A number of the studio's wide-ranging projects have been recognised in major award programs, from a photo essay of Quarantine Cottages, a finalist in the Premiers Design Awards, to the architectural Poddle Bar with Wendy Bergman of Bergman and Co. Nicole is also a published academic author. She enjoys working across borders and has recently published in Germany and America. This year she was invited to be a jury member for Archiol, an international architecture company. Nicole regularly contributes photography to several platforms. Her images have been featured on the NGV and Heide websites and socials. She is a visual art contributor for Beyond Words Literary magazine and had a photo exhibited in Photo 2021, collaborating with French artist JR at Federation Square. She was also Highly Commended in the Mono Photography Competition in 2021. Nicole is currently undertaking a research project and believes the architects' work can be more than what the eye can see; 'allegoria dei sensi'. A trinity of function, form and feeling.
