NICHOLAS GARLAB, Gijón, Spain.
"I began photographing in 2010, when the urge to create became stronger in my life and digital methods made photography more accessible. To be serious, I have to tell you that I’ve never studied photography, I was slowly learning, researching, experimenting and technical mechanisms. Nowadays, I am working primarily in the genres: Portraiture, Still life, Fashion & Fine Art Nude. My work is to effect a relationship between artist and sitter or objects, to create a visual representation of a subject, to capture its essence and soul. I like to work with shadows and create a sense of mystery and powerful images. In any case, I only want to build and to create an imaginary & dreamy world to allow the viewer´s imagination to run wild and create whatever scenario the image suggests to them... but close to the reality."
