I Am Nerd: A Photographic Celebration of Nerdery

Tuesday 07.26.2011 , Posted by

I Am A Nerd, a new series of playful images by freelance photographer Heather Landis, celebrates the inner and sometimes outer nerd in all of us. While the photographs do poke fun at a stereotypically lacking sense of fashion sense, the artists tender and respectful treatment of each individual actually comes across with a lot of heart. Where did she get the supply of her retro glasses? She says, “All of my models are comedians and/or actresses. So, they had collected them for roles.”

Heather Landis is a freelance photographer and high-end retoucher currently residing in Los Angeles. Her clients have includeded Interscope Records, Simon & Schuster, and EvanGolf. You can see more of her playful work on flickr or buy prints at
