About The Work

Nicolas Sisto views Photography and Architecture as two activities that are complementary to each other. His approach for the Ladies series is in fact very similar to his creative process in Architecture. Incidentally, this process leads him to withdraw from his subjects enabling him to capture their solitude. The artist tends to focus on the essential, freeing the image from any unnecessary elements. In this way, the artist seeks a neutral environment in his photographs so as to reveal his subject’s vulnerability and allow the viewer to find their own meanings. Women mesmerize Nicolas by their character and physical traits.

 

Print Information

WHAT TYPE OF PAPER IS THE PHOTOGRAPH PRINTED ON?

All prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.

WHAT IS THE PRINTING PROCESS USED?

All prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper.

IS THE IMAGE SIZE THE SAME AS THE PAPER SIZE?

NO! Our prints are on standard paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum of 0.5 inch white border. This is an artistic decision that belongs to the artist. Margins don’t normally exceed 2-4 inches on each side depending on the final paper size.

Artist Bio

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.
