Statement

On impermanence, through surface and word.

Biography

Having curated and exhibited with the Goldsmiths-affiliated collective Crossing Lines, Nick Scammell completed his MA Photography at LCC in 2014. He was short-listed for the Photoworks OPEN14, and invited to exhibit in This New Feeling at Central Saint Martins in 2015. NYZ, a collaboration which treats New York City as surface, symptom and attitude, was profiled in the Photoworks Annual. Nick was also co-founder of the curatorial project AFTER, which showcases recently-graduated and early-career artists through exhibitions and digital residencies. He lives and works in London.
