Nick is a PhD research student based in the UK, looking at auteur theory in regards to David Lynch. Initially graduating from university with a degree in photography, Nick was originally more focused on the still image as contemporary art. It wasn’t until the world of cinephilia became more accessible to him in his twenties that he pursued further education in film, gaining a Master’s in Film & Television studies. Allured by the strange and mysterious worlds of David Lynch, David Cronenberg and Yorgos Lanthimos, Nick later explored the rich cinema of other auteurs such as Ingmar Bergman, Paul Thomas Anderson, Hal Hartley and Park Chan-wook. Often writing about film and its many nuances, Nick hopes to develop a career in academic writing and theory whilst continuing to produce idiosyncratic visual art of his own.
