Valkyrie Ink

Reka Nyari

Valkyrie Ink is a new exhibition of photography by New York-based photographer Reka Nyari. The series focuses on Eowyn, a young woman who channeled childhood trauma into a story of recovery and reclamation marked by sinuous scars and elaborate tattoos. In this way, she turned her skin into armour—both protective and decorative. Nyari articulates a striking narrative through Eowyn’s gestures, using the trope of the valkyrie to enact a commentary on femininity.
