Nick Prideaux is an Australian documentary photographer based in Bangkok, Thailand. His photographs are an intense journey through the transient moment: the light is fleeting, just like the moments of life, constantly evolving and never the same. His gaze is selective: the scene is stripped of all the superfluous to leave only the important things, the little things, as he himself says.
“My photography is about subtraction. I approach it with a simple process, focusing on the smaller details, the beauty of the little things. I love light and color. “
When you choose taking pictures in this way, you choose to live in this way.
His emotional photography shows a veiled delicacy, every little gesture is amplified by the skillful use of light and imprinted on the film (35mm). An arm reaching out towards nothing or the infinite, hidden faces and feet that emerge from the sheets: here they assume a whole new force.
The gestures that are repeated every day and the precious details are enhanced by the sensitivity of this artist: in a world that runs frantically and has no time to look, Nick offers us a closer look at the world and its fragile beauty.
