Reclining Nude Cyanotype Bandana by Nickolas Carl Photography
Nickolas Carl is a graduate of Humboldt State University, where he received his BA in Studio Art with a focus in Photography. Having always had an interest in photography, he fell in love with it during undergrad, growing fond of film photography and the magic of watching images appear on paper in the darkroom. Nickolas first started using color in his project Wake Up, in which he explored how one could be haunted in their domestic space; dreams and reality coinciding with one another.
Nickolas' photography continues to evolve but centers around the exploration of the human experience. He seeks to deconstruct traditional ideas of gender, to study peoples relationship with each other and their environment, and to explore human sexuality. He finds the honest beauty in his subjects using photography as a way in to human connection. In his most recent series "Whole," he places his subjects in poses in which women have traditionally been depicted to show how one can embody both masculinity and femininity simultaneously.
Being a lover of alternative processes, he found Cyanotype and started printing in rich blue tones, taking his printing beyond paper and onto fabric. He continues to explore photography unbound, searching for new ways to use the medium. He has the great support of a beautiful community of friends and family, a constant inspiration that offer themselves as subjects in collaborations that grasp at some truth. He currently resides in Seaside, OR drawing much inspiration from Oregon's coastline but frequently visits Portland, which was his home for the past five years.
