When fotofoto gallery had an open call for the show “Your Best Shot”, photography students at Post were encouraged to submit work by their professor Thom O’Connor and that is what Nicole DiGiovanni did.
“I grew up in Long Island and have always enjoyed going to fotofoto gallery and I used to dream that I’d have an opportunity to have my artwork displayed in their gallery. I was so excited when Thom made the announcement and I knew I would finally have the chance to have my photographs on display in one of my favorite photo galleries!”

Nicole submitted 3 horse portraits and 1 self-portrait, which are all included in the show.
“I am extremely passionate about the horses and have had the chance to work close with them while being on the LIU Post Equestrian Team. Horses are one of my favorite subjects to photograph; there is something so magical, beautiful, and magnificent about horses. Horses truly are a work of art and I find so much pleasure in being able to capture their beauty with my camera. Horses and photography are two of my greatest passions.”
Studying Photography at LIU Post, Nicole explains that she has tried a few different artistic mediums although photography is her favorite way to express herself and the world around her.
“My favorite subjects to shoot are horses, landscapes and portraits. I act as if my camera is my “third eye” and never go anywhere without my camera. I do not limit myself to shooting one subject and always keep an open mind to whatever my camera and I may see. I enjoying being out in nature with my camera but there’s nothing like being in the studio. Photography has been my creative outlet since elementary school. Photography is my favorite art form; it allows the viewer to be able to interpret the world through images created by the photographer. I find it most interesting to understand the exact moment photographer’s capture and why they are willing to share that image with a viewer.”
“Your Best Shot” is up February 27 – March 28, 2015.
Artist reception is on Saturday, March 28, 5 – 7 PM.
It is a free event and all are welcome!
