Nolan mentions that at one time, she photographed weddings to support herself rather than venture into the dog-eat-dog gallery scene.
"I would tell my clients that I was an artist shooting a wedding and was a real hard-ass about it," she chuckles. "What made me stop was that I felt I was losing my edge. I finally decided it was time for me to speak up."
Nolan pauses to mention that last June, she was run over by a truck while riding her bike and lost a kidney because of the accident. "It gave me perspective about how fragile life is, and I felt it was time to do this."
Her debut at the Dina Mitrani Gallery is not only long overdue but also a full-throated roar that Nolan's talent is way too loud and mighty to ignore.
