“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.”

Nick (b.1976) lives and works in London.
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’ in his work within a country closely connected to him in spirit although lives 6000 miles away from.
Visually Nick has developed a style and palette that uses muted colours and a neutral tones. These tones and the environment where a particular type of soft lighting exists are sought out during the process of setting up a picture. This often creates a subtle and understated image, which accentuate his intent with ambiguity and at times a playful humour. In order to explore this sense of the ambiguous place, Nick uses a combination of environment, portrait and landscape .
Nick’s ability to examine the familiar yet strange, seeing beauty in our unexceptional and day-to-day experiences, has allowed him to bring a diversity of subjects into his work which translates across his work.
