nicholas hughes

I was recently directed to the work of British photographer Nicholas Hughes. His minimalist photographs flit between the romantic and gothic but are always poetic. The reference to poetry is explicit as each series is separated into Verses. I am particularly drawn to Hughes’ use of colour in these almost monochromatic photographs and to his use of motion blur.
