“Nick is an observer par excellence. With an underlying, yet gently satirical sense of humour, his documentary photography is as carefully considered as he is as a person. His portraits are wonderfully to the point, allowing his subjects to flourish in his frame, whilst his landscapes convey a poetic and timeless sense of space. He never strays far from his very own visual language, making it a recurring joy to discover what he next has in store for us.”
Petek Sketcher, Art Buyer, Winkcreative
A rich Bolivian heritage plays a key role in Nick’s subject matter and identity as a photographer, alongside a desire to feel more connected and explore the idea of ‘foreignness’ within a country. This forms a key part of his practice and seeps into all elements of his work.
Nick’s ability to examine the familiar yet strange and beauty in our unexceptional day-to-day experiences has allowed him to bring a diversity of subjects into his work which translates into his editorial and commercial commissions. This has developed a style and palette that uses muted colours and tones with subtle and understated images, which accentuates his intent with ambiguity and at times playfulness. Exploring a sense of place through a combination of environment, portrait, memory, and landscape.
Nick now lives and works in London and travels several times a year back to South America. He has exhibited widely in Europe, China and New York.
In 2013 Nick will release his first book as limited edition artwork showcasing a body of work documenting one of one of the worlds oldest surviving airlines (Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano) entitled LAB. This will be a multi-platform project, which will also be exhibited in London in July 2013 following the book launch at KK Outlet.
