From a limited edition of 6 archival photographs. A prehistoric-looking scaly lizard lurks in the darkness near the bottom of the composition. Dark spikes and scales camouflage the reptile in the shadows. Three Galapagos crabs scurry along the rough rock, pincers facing froward. It seems that someone may soon be eaten, but it won’t be our hero, who has positioned herself well above the fray. Her position on the precipice is precarious, balanced delicately on a sloped face. She is ironically graceful, on tiptoe in the face of peril. She is a vertical pillar of ivory.

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."
