Nina Welch-Kling is a New York City-based street photographer, originally from Schweinfurt, a small town in southern Germany. Her experiences growing up as the daughter of a Holocaust survivor and a German native, her background in architecture and design, and her love of anonymously roaming the city street with her camera, all inform her photographic depictions of everyday life.
Welch-Kling earned a B.F.A. with a focus in Interior Design from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1990 and a Master in Architecture from The University of California, Los Angeles in 1993. She has lived in New York City since 1995, and has since married, and raised her two, now college-aged daughters. While raising her children, Welch-Kling continued to explore creative outlets for her ideas and re-discovered her passion for photography.
