An unapologetic celebration of the female form, the art of A K Nicholas invites the viewer to explore a dreamlike world. Photography is simply a starting point on this journey to an unknown destination. The themes reference, both in homage and critique: hedonism, patriarchy, commercialism, tradition, and strength. This chosen perspective of beauty is neither overwrought with eroticism nor obligated to modesty. To explore a genre, we must change it by contributing something new; competence, ideas, and passion alone are not enough. Always at ease with visual expression, as a second generation artist, childhood included exposure to galleries and museums in dozens of countries. Although formally trained in painting and drawing, he chose photography as best suited to convey his ideas.
