Nicholas Anthony Martin, was born to a Norwegian mother and English father and spent his younger years growing up in a small commuting suburb just north of Oslo, Norway.
At the age of 10 Nicholas received his first camera from his father, who in turn had received his first camera at about the same age, so you can definitely say that photography is in the family genes. Nicholas’s grandfather took extensive B&W shots during the 2nd World War, which he developed himself in the field and colored by hand. From 10 years and onwards Nicholas and the camera were inseparable.
Nicholas has an educational background in media, drawing and fine art and tries to create modern artwork through his photography. His art is a fusion of his travels and experiences, especially that of the cold, bleak Norwegian winters and the vibrant colourful modern Britain, and tries to create a “feeling” through his images, with his passion for detail and the obscure.
In later years Nicholas has travelled extensively in Europe and also lived and worked in Ireland, Germany, Norway and the UK, and now considers himself to be a “eurocrat”, something which definitely introduces a mixed culture flair to his work. Nicholas has permanently left the peace and tranquillity of Norway for a more creative existence in London, and hasn’t ever looked back!
