Nadiya Nacorda works in photography, video, and performance. Focusing on images of herself and family, her work heavily draws from notions of intimacy, affection, secrecy, and generational inheritance within matriarchal lineage. 

Nadiya received her BFA in Photography & Film from VCU Arts in Richmond, VA. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Art Photography at Syracuse University’s School of Visual and Performing Arts. Her first book: A Special Kind of Double was published in 2020 by KG Projects as a part of the LOST books collection. Her work has been exhibited at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, the Midwest Center for Photography, the Detroit Public Library art gallery, RISD's Red Eye Gallery in Providence, RI, and Candela Books + Gallery in Richmond, VA. She is also a 2019 finalist of the Magenta Foundation's Flash Forward competition, 2020 Lit List, and the 2021 Silver list.
