Nick Prideaux is an Australian photographer based in Bangkok. Using film as his medium he documents his day to day life like a diary, capturing stories of the city through the lens of his own experiences.
“My photography is about subtraction. I approach it with a simple and minimalistic process – tending to focus on the smallest details, the beauty in the minutiae. My work more or less like a visual diary – I keep my camera with me to document what I see day to day.”
‘Compact Mindfulness’ was shot in Japan, Turkey, Laos, and Thailand across the last two and a half years. Visually, it testifies to Prideaux’s approach to photography: simplicity through subtraction and a focus on bold colour and light.
“These images evoke a feeling of personal nostalgia, past summers spent in countries I’ve lived and travelled through – moments captured on film so they aren’t lost to the annals of time. Photography for me is about that connection to the image – each of these images when viewed takes me back directly to the time and place. I photograph my life to keep memories and to document the quiet moments.’
