Nic Lehoux

Nic has been an architectural photographer for 25 years, and a passionate observer of light, architecture and the human condition his entire life. His worked is grounded in the rigour of large format film photography that defined his earlier career. That rigour is combined with a truly progressive approach to the documentation of spaces with people. His work has a uniquely strong and distinct signature. It is informed by the traditions of architectural photography, the sensitivities of modern photojournalism, and a keen understanding of both architecture and the way people move within a space. Using an arsenal of medium format photographic tools and lighting techniques, Nic relies primarily on in-camera approaches to documentation and less on postproduction digital manipulation. He works closely with some of the world’s most respected architects, defining in photographs what makes their work unique. His work has been published regularly in every major architectural publication, and in hundreds of books. His work has also been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally. His interests in social documentary work has resulted in several personal projects that bridge architecture and society. Some of these include: The adobe architecture and people of the Dogon, Mali Mazar-i-Shariff: An urban exploration of an Afghani City at the crossroads Dystopia: Explorations in a marginal landscape of post modern America Dystopia: Eexplorations of contrasts and contradictions in China Modernism in Cuba 1950-1970. Nic is French Canadian in origin, and lives in Western North America with his wife and daughter.
