Nick JS Thompson

Born in 1988, Thompson spent his formative years documenting BMX and its associated subcultures, before widening his field of vision to explore and document communities, and the marks that they leave upon the spaces they inhabit.

There is a stillness to much of Thompson's imagery, that draws our gaze to the often overlooked beauty in quotidian space. Social commentary is a consistent presence in his images, but didacticism gives way to subtlety and nuance. The viewer is confronted with reality, and is given the space to interpret this for themselves.
