Nicolas Velter was born in Brussels in 1981. He began studying photography in 2002 and nowadays works primarily in fashion and advertising.
Mise-en-scene is central to his work, together with leaving space for a personal interpretation of the image.
His work is viewed as both powerful and touching. Details are deliberately placed, the layout of his images is carefully constructed. His photographs grab the viewer’s attention, seemingly immaterial settings are used with deliberation.
The atmosphere in Nicolas' work is unique and sometimes disturbing, his imagery is very powerful indeed.
Pieces walk a line between hard and soft, between roughness and poetry. And there is, without any doubt, often irony there too.
Photography allows Nicolas to tell a story to the viewer, but everyone will have a personal interpretation.
