Nick Brandt shows us nature as we want it to be
Last week saw the successful exhibition of Nick Brandt’s photography at Fotografiska. It is amazing and nearly unreal to be this close to nature through his photography. Nick’s photographs are probably closer to nature than any other attempts in history. I think his art is so successful because he not only shows nature as we like it to be (like an advertisement showing the beauty of nature) but also because it reflects how we want nature to see us. In other words I believe Nick’s master piece has created a mirror in which we can admire and watch ourselves as a part of nature. This is also a masterful way of packaging art into an commercial framework (nothing wrong with artist who know how to spread and sell art). Check out Nick Brandt’s photography, Facebook and books.
