Upfront: EYE Nominate


Meet Nikki Graziano

Photographer, The Studio at Jobson

Even when Nikki Graziano emerges from her darkened photo studio, it’s unlikely she’s without her ubiquitous sun frames propped atop her rebel-girl bangs and layers. She’s a true sunwear addict, and hailing from the Northeast, she says protecting her baby blues from harsh sun when the clouds part is a high priority. Nikki also mixes optical pieces into the coolly creative style she’s coined “grandma cowboy,” artfully mixing leather, knit sweaters, handcrafted pieces and broken-in boots into simple ensembles. Nikki’s pictured in her favorite frame, a classic Ray-Ban with a vintage-inspired keyhole bridge in style RB 5165 from Luxottica.
