When I was the age of six, I visited the the Tanzanian archipelago of Zanzibar. My mother took the image seen in the background as reference for an oil painting. I am fascinated by the use of birds in composition, here they act the same way a fig leaf would in a Vatican nude.

In Christian art, birds are an analogy for the soul. Seagulls have a personal connection to me, having grown up near the water. I’ve lived near the coast most of my adult life as well.

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."
