I haven’t picked up the guitar since. Photography came very easily to me. I understood it instinctively and the results, (compared to writing a song, which might take a year, by which time I couldn’t tell if it was any good or not) were instant. I started getting work immediately and soon had to give up signing on the dole (very traumatic) and even my part time waiter’s job. My first big job was a series of book covers for Poolbeg Press, which I couldn’t believe they actually hired me for, since I hadn’t a clue what I was doing. I was given a rough brief and had to find locations, props, models etc. For all you photogs, I was shooting transparency film on a Pentax 67 with no polariods, using filters, mixing daylight and tungsten and keeping my fingers crossed that they would turn out. I travelled to each location on my bicycle, with the lights balanced precariously in a suitcase on the handlebars, camera and tripod strapped to my back. Ahh the good old days. I love photographing people. There is still something magical that happens between the subject, me and the camera that still surprises me. I still feel like I've only started." - Mark Nixon  photo ml2_zpsfd632aeb.jpg  photo muchloved3BigTedownedbyMaireadHarrington_zps68dc30f1.jpg  photo much-loved-teddy-bears-and-stuffed-animals-mark-nixon-3_zps73a25513.jpg

In each photo the people are posed in comically awkward positions and photographed from unflattering angles."

Mike Mellia: Another Day in Paradise

The American theme and unsettling locations that emerged seemed to create a tension with the time and place they inhabited. These landscapes and surroundings unveil a cold and strangely moving beauty, a series of movie stills that tells a story through its mood.

Shinichi Maruyama

" I tried to capture the beauty of both the human body’s figure and its motion. The figure in the image, which is formed into something similar to a sculpture, is created by combining 10,000 individual photographs of a dancer. By putting together uninterrupted individual moments, the resulting image as a whole will appear to be something different from what actually exists. With regard to these two viewpoints, a connection can be made to a human being’s perception of presence in life." - Shinichi Maruyama
