Manhattan-based photographer Jordan Tiberio spends her days studying photography at the Fashion Institute of Technology. An early feature of her work in Upon Paper, the same issue showcasing work by James Franco, gained her notoriety as a visionary portrait photographer. Jordan’s portraits are often more surreal than naturalistic, but a piece of each image draws you back to reality. She pulls inspirations from dreams, the mini one-night-only movie showings we watch in our sleep, and hopes her images spark memories of your own.

“My photographs are the odd in ordinary, your fever dreams, a melancholy lullaby,” she tells Nerve. Flipping through Jordan’s portfolio, you’ll find numerous peeks of beautiful nude imagery, which could be an awkward feat for a 21-year-old photographer, but she projects the confidence she found in her own body onto her subjects, making for relaxed, honest, and relatable photographs. “Though I do not wish to objectify my models in anyway, I treat the nude body as a prop; an ever-changing, transformative object, limitless in its potential beauty,” she says. “Being in control and knowing what kind of images I want to make is helpful, but I also keep myself open to discovering new ideas while in the moment.” Here’s a look at some of the whimsical images by Jordan Tiberio.
