Photographer Focus: Nigel Powers
If I was Kanye West, I'd say Nigel's photos are dripping swagu. And by that I mean all of the characters in his work have major swag, and a seriously cool aura about them. His photos capture what it's like to be a certain age, and how important it is to stay true to yourself, something both Paul and I are struggling with in our quarter-life crises. His work revolves around a carefree sprit, drifting around the world trying to find yourself. I think everyone our age (mid-twenties) can relate to his photos, which makes evocative, a quality many artists struggle to achieve in their work. Check out a short Q&A with the artist, and more of Nigel's work below, as well as on his blog and website.
