Card | The Vigil (Nathan Secker)


The photographer Nathan Secker was born and raised in Christchurch, New Zealand.

His family ran an art gallery and, as a child in the 1960s, he was inspired particularly to take up a career in photography by Ansel Adams, the enormously successful photographer of epic American landscape scenes.

Describing himself as "fortunate to be able to indulge a passion", Nathan Secker describes his artwork as a depiction of "the light, the landscape, shapes and colours found in nature”.

He adds: “my part is to find a way to present the image as I have seen it.

Everyone sees the world with their own filter and I am attempting to show that view through my own eyes".
