Nicholas Hopkins

 

Nicholas Hopkins has for the past twenty years travelled extensively, focusing his viewfinder on realities that often escapes the eye. Nicholas’ work specifically captures an instant, an everyday moment frozen in time, inviting us to perhaps consider similar, self-observed, situations. In his cityscapes, the busy urban fabric becomes a distillation of time, a silent moment, a space within the hustle and bustle of ordinary life. Nicholas uses little equipment, just a simple mechanical camera (35mm range finder) with a standard lens. Each photograph is captured handheld and in natural light.

Nicholas employs varied weather conditions to bring out the textures of his subject matter, either profiting from clear sharp days to maximize details and contrast, or, especially in cityscapes, using rain and water to allow reflections shine off of the tarmac or off cars or trains.
