  NICO BICK     NICO BICK     NICO BICK  
Nico Bick (1964) studied photography at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, graduating in 1991.
As a photographer he investigates through art projects the use of (public) spaces: what is the identity of a space and what defines private and public areas. His work is characterised by a contemplative, often detached view of the places he photographs. This was evidenced in his early work by a preference for inconspicuous places that are so familiar that nobody seems to notice them anymore. Nowadays he focuses on spaces that reveal a tangible tension between the public and private domains.
In an age when everybody can produce digital photos easily, Nico Bick feels a strong need for an uncompromisingly analogue approach. Using a large-format camera, patience and careful observation, he creates conceptual series of highly detailed images, thereby stimulating the viewer to reflect on the subject and focusing one’s attention on both the space itself – in the absence of people – and its purpose.
