A native of Saint Martin d’Hères, France, Nicolas has lived in Milan, Grenoble and Montreal but is now based in Paris where he is a practicing architect.
Nicolas views that activity as complementary to his photography. “Creation in architecture is a dense, slow and complex process closely tied to fiction. The working architect is a perpetual day-dreamer attempting to transpose an intuition about the relationship between the human and landscape. Photography is a more intense and instantaneous process focused on the moment and a psychological relationship with the subject.”
He is inspired both by the ‘monumental timelessness’ of artists such as Judd, Serra or Turrell and the ‘psychologists’ Caravaggio and Weegee.
