Constantia Nicolaides

Career summary

I studied History of Art at the University of Sussex with a focus on modern and contemporary art, photography and visual culture, and joined the National Portrait Gallery’s photographic department in 2003.

Areas of interest / research

As a result of my work on the Gallery’s collection, I have developed a specialist interest in the work of Victorian portrait photographers, particularly from the heyday of the carte-de-visite in the 1860s through to the Edwardian period.
