WATCH: Photographer Jim Nickelson discussed Iceland artist residency-on Zoom
The Camden Conference and Rockland Public Library presented photographer Jim Nickelson discussing his work on November 5 at 6:30pm.
In his presentation, Jim discussed his 2018 artist residency at the Baer Art Center on the northern coast of Iceland. Through his photographs taken over his two weeks on the island, he depicted the varied and incredibly beautiful landscapes of Iceland. Seeing this wonderful landscape as well as the impacts of climate change that are already evident resulted in a redirection of his artistic work towards an activist stance. Jim also discussed his newest body of work, The Anthropocene Surveys, for which this Iceland trip is both the centerpiece and inspiration.
