Erika Nina Suárez is a documentary and portrait photographer based in North Texas. Suárez spent most of her childhood living on a farm in her mother's ancestral Hungarian village of Hosszúhetény before permanently relocating with her family to South Florida. She received a BFA in Photography from The University of North Texas in 2019. All of her personal work is shot exclusively on medium and large format film, since it enables her to make higher quality prints with greater detail.

In addition to undertaking photographic commissions, she is currently completing a long-term project that focuses on the recent resurgence of traditional farming practices within rural communities in Europe, including her extended family in Hungary. Her work has been exhibited internationally and featured in numerous publications and billboards. 

Erika currently lives and works between the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas and Hosszúhetény, Hungary. She holds dual citizenship in the EU and speaks Hungarian, English, Spanish, German, and Russian. 

Erika is an active member of TheLuupe, Diversify Photo, NPPA, and the Texas Drone Association.
