Practice Statement

Primarily working in photography and documentary filmmaking, Nicholas Seitz creates work which meticulously catalogues and interrogates spaces and communities which are often overlooked or taken for granted. With an assumption that filmmaking and photography can render the commonplace and transparently familiar in terms which invite deeper contemplation, Seitz invites his viewers to consider the oddity, intricacy, and even beauty of every corner of the created world.
