Nigel Maudsley, United-Kingdom65 years oldNigel Maudsley is a Brighton based photographer and artist whose work explores the representation of sexuality, mortality and identity. His practice crosses many genres such as portraiture, landscape and short experimental films

Nigel's short film ‘Chance Encounter’ which used original photographs within a 3D environment was shown at 12 international film festivals. He was commissioned by Addictve TV to produce a music video called ‘Coma’ for a 7 part TV series called ‘Transambient’ which was screened on BBC Channel 4

His work as a freelance photographer included portraits of Joseph Beuys, Gilbert and George and Andy Warhol commissioned by the Anthony d'Offay Gallery, London UK. He also had numerous exhibitions of his Photography including in Chicago, San Francisco, Brighton and London. He was Lens Culture Editors Pick in November 2013.
His most recent work has been published in several magazines including

Prior to taking early retirement to concentrate on his own work Nigel was the Post Graduate Coordinator for the Faculty of Art, Media and Design at London Metropolitan University and Course Leader for the MA in Digital Film and Animation. He also wrote an MA in Photography which was successfully validated in 2007.

He works both traditionally and digitally and has a passion for traditional photographic techniques. Tonal values and subtle variations in light and shade give the work depth and a unique visual language. The varying contrast of daylight offers new opportunities and insights into the subject matter.

Digital portraiture is far more forgiving and enables one to improvise with a subject around an idea or a prop. In addition post production techniques become engaging as threads of ideas can be enhanced and edited into a final series

His current work includes a project called ‘Vague’ which explores what lies in the periphery of our vision through the production of light paintings. Since moving to Brighton in July 2011 his fascination with the sea and its relationship to the human form and psyche informs his work. Its brooding force produces dark and haunting imagery with a sense of mystery both visually and conceptually

Working with plants and organic material Nigel has explored the nature of death and mortality through the use of digital techniques. The juxtaposition of imagery is a key element of achieving the aims of this project

He is driven by creativity and question social norms and perception of reality. Current projects are ‘Seascapes’, ‘Groynes’ and ‘Ghosts and Dreams’
