This piece is distinct for several reasons: the square format, the angled composition, and the obscured nudity. Ava swims leisurely amidst sparkling ripples. The diagonal composition is electric in its energy invoking feelings of summer whimsy. A figure that is not aligned with the vertical or horizontal edge of the picture is a nod to nonconformity. Her nudity is obscured by the folds of the water, a vivid statement.

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."
