Piece by piece
Coming from a studio-based, still photography background, Nik Mirus builds his pictures from the ground up. “The majority of my work is studio based. It is a space where I am in control of the environment and where I can plan out the details of an image well before I take out a camera. It allows me to build my pictures piece by piece.
Making preliminary sketches, brainstorming with collaborators, mocking up and building sets, working through technically challenging ideas, and experimenting with new techniques and equipment are all a big part of the experience.”
