Born in Birmingham in the West Midlands, now lives and works in Stourbridge, England.
Started contemporary photography at the University of Wolverhampton, and graduated in 2012 with a string of exhibitions both with the university, but also around the world. Disabled from an industrial accident in 1996, which has been a part of the artist's communication both with the physical action of the camera and the effect on what is seen by the viewer Nigal good ship moves between a realistic representation of emotion, both from a personal experience and a landscape of subject matter to be determined by the viewer.
His recent works still follow this idea of detachment and over-attachment to imagery.
We all have to deal with loss in some form or another, it's nature.
After my father died, we had to clear his house of his belongings, both everyday objects, like furniture, crockery, etc, and more personal, pictures, clothes, his reading glasses, and other belongings.
After all the objects were cleared, we found a hidden truth that he hid from us for decades, the state of his own house. Was in. Unkept cold and drafty, no heating, hot water, just a small log burner to stay warm.
Instead of asking for help, he lived like a pauper.
These images are a few I took to remind me of not just a childhood home, but of my dad's sacrifice to hide this from his family, so they would not worry about him.
