Nick Brandreth is internationally recognized as a master of photographic process, with a decade of experience as the Historic Process Specialist at the George Eastman Museum. His extensive research on the evolution of historic and alternative photographic processes has made him a sought-after teaching artist and enabled him to develop a diverse and innovative bodies of work using techniques like dry plate glass negatives, handmade early-20th-century-era motion picture film, Lippmann color plates and holograms to name a few. Brandreth creates unique photographic objects and apparatus to display and interact with his work. Brandreth taps into his deep knowledge and expertise of photographic process and combines them with a love for horror and the macabre as well as the histories of photography and cinema to create a surreal landscape of work that explores the ideas of time, fear and the unknown. Using 3D printers, simple lenses, electronics, bookbinding and woodworking techniques, Brandreth’s art spans a range of mediums. His handmade works are seductive and utterly uncanny. Brandreth strives for his work to be cinematic, intimate, interactive and engaging.
