Water / Woods – Black and White Photography by Nicholas Bell
Nicholas Bell is a fine art photographer from Knoxville, Tennessee, who specializes in monochromatic photography. The majority of his images are of nature and, in particular, scenes near water or woodlands. He’s inspired by the concept of time, passing and slowing down. “Photography for me has to do with time and my perception of time,” he says. “The first day that I spent with a camera I recognized that being completely focused and connected to a scene seemed to slow time.” In his work, he tries to communicate that idea of individual moments, stopped in time and purified from all distractions.
