What is conceptional art? I always thought this is a strange criteria because most photographers have something like a concept in mind when the do their shootings. Im following your work since quite some time and always loved the conecpts behind your photos. There is always a lot of depth and its even more stunning when we remember that you are such a young artist.

But what I want to mention beside the vision which makes photos like this so stunning is the technique. I really like the lightning and the smoke as well as the bookeh. You did a good job as model and director of the scene. Yep, I use the word director by purpose because this photo could also be a snapshot of a moviescene. You arranged things well without making them look to arranged and create an own athmosphere.

I m a cultural anthropologist and wrote my bachelorthesis about facebook which is a perfect example for a culture of self-staging and so Im used to a lot of literature and photos, critical drawings and so on about this phenomena. What I really like on your way of thinking about this issue of a culturephenomena is that you show the way of behaving in front of the camera without pointing with the finger. You give the viewer the chance to come up with own thoughts. Well I could continue for quite some time but I guess or hope that you got my point. You did an great job Nicholas. Keep up the great and thoughtful work ;)

there is a lot of atmosphere to this photo. the light coming in from the window is just enough, and the empty room makes me wonder where you are at. and the way you are smoking gives it a mellow or sort of melancholy look to it--i'm not sure if you're feeling anguish or if this is relaxation. all in all, it's a mysterious picture and i love it. keep it up.

what I wonder is; if melancholic, what does the camera do there? is it all an act, or is this something real, something honest?
your words were lovely to read. thank you for taking your time.

for some reason these are the two words that'd been said about this picture that frankly matter the most to me. it feels as though you put what I wanted to say just like that.

du rauchst doch nich wirklich?! o.O
ein super konzept! so, wie sich die heutige junge generation ins internet stellt: fotos, je cooler (=peinlicher), desto besser.
richtig passend wäre eine handykamera im badezimmer vorm spiegel! xDD

aha, ja ich weiß. ich hatte auch gedacht, es irgendwie in die richtung zu schubsen, aber weißt du, ich bin schlecht im "witzige" fotos machen, ich mache lieber dunkle und verschleierte satire als irgendetwas offensichtliches.
