Over the last decade,  Nicole Jean Hill has photographed a diverse range of subject matter centered in Humboldt County, California, including mixed martial arts fight culture, landscapes and detritus from public lands, and animals being captured and tracked by wildlife biologists. Alongside her own art practice, Hill has managed the Lora Webb Nichols archive since 2013. Her 2021 monograph on Nichols (Encampment, Wyoming: Selections from the Lora Webb Nichols Archive 1899-1948) was nominated for the 2021 Aperture-Paris Photo Book of the Year award.
