Jorgie is a dynamo of posing energy. Here, she is captured mid-dance, leaping in the air in front of a bank of ice-blue glass blocks that glow with the brilliant light of the outdoors. Her body language screaming of strength and her golden skin highlights her vibrantly alive spirit, contrasting against the turquoise grid behind her. Shot with a glass block window in an old warehouse in Charlotte, North Carolina (US). The color palette is restrained to just a few hues. Although the colors are conceivable, they deviate from reality, applied deliberately across areas on the image.
A K Nicholas was born in the United States and raised in the Middle East. Always at ease with visual expression, as a second generation artist, childhood included exposure to galleries and museums in dozens of countries. Although formally trained in painting and drawing, he chose photography as best suited to convey his ideas. "I feel the most successful images leave the viewer either unsure or unconcerned as to the precise process of production."
