Photographer: Nilla Palmer (Brisbane, Australia) Registered
Nilla Palmer’s natural desire to travel and photograph many parts of the world started 27 years ago. Although her photography addiction first started with a 110mm film camera, then progressing to 35mm cameras, a photography course, which included B&W darkroom techniques, and recently digital cameras.
