Photographer Spotlight: James Nizam

A selection of images from “Vestiges of Memory” by Vancouver-based photographer James Nizam. Structural fixtures are meticulously covered in Scotchlite reflective material and photographed at night.

When I saw the series in person (really large) at Gallery Jones there was a beautiful almost magic-like quality to them. As with much of Nizam’s work this series examines time and place through a series of experiments that feel extremely personal. More images below.
