Nicolas St-Pierre (b. 1974) is a Canadian photographer currently based in Tokyo, Japan. He has been practicing photography passionately ever since he was offered a Soviet-made Zenit camera by an Italian friend some 25 years ago. Lawyer by training, diplomat by trade but wanderer at heart, Nicolas dedicates most of his spare time capturing the places and people that he encounters through his professional and personal travels. From North America to Asia and Europe, he enjoys immersing himself in new environments, aiming to express through his photography both the uniqueness of his surroundings and the universality of human relations.
