Fine Art Photography
A. K. Nicholas is an American visual artist who creates photography in celebration of beauty. His painterly style mixes formal art training with theatrical elements. This unorthodox aesthetic is an escape from reality for the viewer. A. K.’s themes rely in varying degrees on formal composition to celebrate the form.
Unlike many traditional photographers, documenting fact is irrelevant to A. K. The subject is more actor than model, improvising a character, time, and place. Hidden details can add mystery and nuance, intended to elicit speculation. Layered design is intended to keep viewers returning to an image.
A. K. is from the United States and was raised overseas as a second-generation artist.
