An unapologetic celebration of the female form, the figure photography of A K Nicholas leads us into a dream-like world. Photography is only a starting point on a journey into fictional creations. The artwork references traditional ideas of beauty in a blend of nostalgia and candid sensuality; neither purely erotic, nor obliged to modesty. The themes and style are influenced by Mel Ramos, Hajime Sorayama, Helmut Newton, Olivia De Berardinis, and ...more.
