Nicole Jacobs has exhibited her photographic work in over 50 gallery shows, from New York to Savannah, New Orleans and Asheville, to overseas in Moscow, Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, and, most recently, in the Photography Biennale in Jinan, China. She has a wanderlust for travel and is constantly exploring with camera in hand. In 2011, Jacobs brought headlining speakers and shows of Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann to the Art Institute of Atlanta and Atlanta Celebrates Photography. In fact, ACP, where she is currently a member of the advisory board, is one of the main reasons she moved back to Atlanta.
Jacobs graduated with a MFA in Photography from SCAD in 2002. Her undergraduate degree was earned at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC. She has been a professor of photography at The Art Institute of Atlanta since 2004.
