美國攝影師 Nicholas Alan Cope,出生於1983年,他一輯名為《Stamen》(雄蕊)系列,與藝術指導Dustin Edward Arnold合作完成,色彩濃重迷幻,營造出近似浪漫主義油畫的視覺效果,拍攝過程中使用了大量化學物質,乾冰、鹽、鹼液和其他“在家裡你實在不該混合在一起的東西”。

Both with varying backgrounds in photography and design Nicholas and Dustin met through a
commercial project in 2007 and began their first collaboration in October of 2009.
Each working beyond their respective discipline they combine the mediums of painting, chemistry,
sculpture, fashion and installation as a part of their image-making process.

Their first project Putesco (2009) explores classical composition and aesthetics through
decomposing still lives. Aether (2010) is a mixture of painting, chemistry and photography, dealing
with perception of the abstract. Stamen (2010) takes that same interest in the abstract applied to conventional
floral arrangements, while Vedas (2011) marked their move into fashion imagery through photographing
sculptural garments of their own design.

They are currently working on a number of projects and collaborations due for release in
late 2012 and early 2013.

Nicholas et Dustin ont tous deux eu diverses expériences dans la photographie et le design en général. Ils se sont rencontrés lors d’une commande d’un client en 2007. Depuis, ils se retrouvent pour expérimenter et mélanger leurs talents pour donner naissance à des projets très engagés esthétiquement (comprendre : pas forcément du goût de tout le monde).
