Nico Bick  (1964)  studied photography at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (1986-1991). As a visual artist he investigates the use of [public] space by means of the photography. Characteristic of his early work is a preference for inconspicuous places that appear to be so familiar that nobody seems to notice them anymore. Nowadays he directs his view in particular at spaces with a tangible tension between the public and the private domain.
In a time where everybody can produce digital photos easily, Nico Bick feels a strong need for an uncompromising analogue approach. With patience and careful observation he creates, together with a large format camera, series of highly detailed images to focus the attention to both the space — in the absence of its users — and the meaning of the places he photographs.
