Featured Artist: Nicholas Hughes

British landscape photographer Nicholas Hughes (b.1963) recently released his first monograph, Nowhere Far (Gost, 2017), spanning 15 years of his photographic career to date. The publication features six of Hughes’s series, including two new projects As Light Falls and The Relentless Melt, described by The Guardian as achieving a “fluidity and creative blurring of form... a meditation on the implacable vastness of time and space.”

A keen environmentalist, Hughes’s practice examines the space between the world that people inhabit and that which nature still claims as its own. In this intermediary space between the two, his abstracted compositions reflect on the essence of the human spirit and its relationship with nature. By focusing on boundaries, plains and surfaces he acknowledges the limits humanity has imposed on the natural world and contemplates the future for both.

Nicholas Hughes studied at the London College of Communication. His work has been exhibited internationally and is held in a variety of photographic collections worldwide, including the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston) and the Gana Art Center (Seoul).

Signed limited edition prints by Nicholas Hughes are available for purchase from the Print Sales Gallery. Prices from £400 + vat unframed.
