Stuart Nicholls was born in 1976 in the maritime city of Portsmouth.
Pursuing his interest in photography, he studied the art at the colleges of South Downs and Stoke on Trent respectively.
In 2000 Stuart moved to London to assist noted music photographer Jill Furmanovsky. He became the specialist printer for her company ‘Rockarchive’, where he practiced the traditional silver halide wet and digital processes. This experience secured him a place as one of the most highly regarded printers in the business. On top of this Stuart established himself as a proficient music photographer in his own right.
More recently Stuart has embarked on a personal project. In this insincere digital age he wants to strip the art of photography back to its origins.
He has ventured to create fine art images where the entire process, from loading the camera to drying the print, is meticulously considered.
The images, all shot with black and white film, are available in special editions according to the time and place taken. Although each is very different to the last, they are all representative of something that has stirred the photographer.
