Artist of the Week: Chloe Nicholls

“From an early age, I was interested in the idea of capturing a moment and forever having it to look at. I began taking photos with a small digital camera when I was 10”

Chloe Nicholls is a young photographer from South Wales, primarily interested in exploring conceptual ideas through her photography. Chloe strives for minimalism in her photos, but has recently branched out into portraiture and documentary photography; shooting both digital and film.

“I’m now 17 and still expanding on my knowledge, equipment and experience. My first real inspiration for photography was William Eggleston – the saturated colours in his prints stood out to me and inspired me to pick up a film camera. Now, I find inspiration through looking at light and form, and how that accentuates the particular subject I’m shooting.”

“Multiverse” is a series of photos using mirrors in natural environments. Chloe explains how “the mirror acts as a window or doorway to provide a different perspective of the same landscape, thus exploring the idea of multiple realities existing at one time”

Chloe’s inspiration for this series came from Daniel Kukla and his photography using mirrors.

“I have always found photography to be therapeutic and a good way to distract myself from daily life.”

In the future, Chloe hopes to study for a degree in photography and become a full time photographer.
