For unreleased portrait images from the series as well, as the featured interview with Nigel continue below:
Which one do you prefer, being in front or behind the camera?
I think that both situations require a specific level of talent and performance, which makes it hard for me to choose. But at the moment I feel most comfortable behind the camera, simply because I have been doing it longer.
What’s the funniest thing that has happened to you on a shoot?
It usually happens when clients find out that I am a dancer, and ask me to do some ‘fun’ poses. Obviously I can never take it seriously, and the resulting images are absolutely hilarious.
What was the last thing to make you cry?
Trying to frame my final work for my graduation art show was definitely a very stressful and emotional experience.
What was the last dream you remember?
Probably something lucid where I was flying, or exploring some impossible form of geographical terrain—those tend to occur frequently.
Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
No. I sometimes count stairs, though.
What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
Tom Ford’s ‘A Single Man’.
When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
Probably to an ex-lover.
Have you ever cried because you were so happy?
Do you miss anyone right now?
