About the Collection:
Nicholas' studio is a separate building and entity to the photography laboratory where the conclusion of his creative ideas take place to the finished hand-printed photograph from the negative. But that is another story for another day.
When the creative process begins for Nicholas, if you have had the privilege granted, it is a fascinating process to watch.
Let us take the 1920's steamer trunk for example. Found and purchased in an old antique shop that restored such items, Nicholas brought this trunk into his studio, and in an excited state, cleared the space around it. He then opens the lid and with his eyes closed, deeply inhales the musty smell of age. He then walks around the trunk, deeply in thought and then closes the lid and sits on the trunk, pondering.
Nicholas then tells his avid audience a story of the interesting journey this trunk has taken from the history he has garnered from previous owners - circus and sideshow performers!
These remaining historical icons retired to Gibtown, a city of the original freak shows, magician and vaudeville artiste's, he tells us that this trunk has in essence documented their journey by rail and road, from their travels on the Orient Express to the high seas journey on an ocean going liner.
