Nick Prideaux Captures the Quiet Moments of Everyday Life in a Visual Diary

“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.

 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.’
