Artist Biography - 'Ambiguous Misdirection'
In Ambiguous Misdirection, Nick Gregan’s creative process on this project has taken an unstructured formation, and is characterized by a series of abstract shapes carefully selected in celebration of the female form. This beautiful collection of fine art photography does not follow a linear path, instead the images should be viewed at the viewer’s discretion, with no specific shots chosen to mark the start or finish.
The collection evokes the profound misdirection of one’s mind, pushing the spectator to look beyond the obvious and question what they see at first glance. In this collection, the strong yet graceful mystery in each silhouette strives to occupy the viewer, letting them add their own connotation to each image.
Nick’s use of light is paramount in capturing the human form in such an anomalous way. By challenging his viewer to come to their own conclusion about his work, he has strived to present a body of work full of intrigue, curiosity and suspense.
Nick's photography career began by chance in a studio in London’s East End. Despite not having formal qualifications, he has built up an enviable reputation over the last 20 years following his mantra of “the camera is just a tool, my imagination is my vision”.
“He has fantastic understanding of the female form and a wonderful vision.” Anthony Streager (film Director)
