Guest photographer for the Photographic Nights of Selma 2022
Nicolas Klein is characterized by his appetite for encounters. Truly curious about his contemporaries, he captures them in the manner of a reporter or as a portraitist. Handling the word with ease, Nicolas Klein dialogues with naturalness and warmth; he easily creates links. He could be satisfied with words to express himself, if he did not feel a passion for photography, this other medium that combines art with ideas.
Beyond the social and societal concerns that his sensitivity pushes him to deal with, Nicolas catches beings in transition, between two places, two stages or two situations. As if he wanted to play a trick on photography which immortalizes a single moment, Nicolas only depicts people in the making.
For once, Nicolas offers a very personal and intimate series entitled “INVISIBLE PAINS” at the Photographic Nights of Selma, which relates a permanent pain in his arm resulting from the after-effects of an illness.
