29 years ago, a young man was given a hand-me-down camera. His interest piqued and he enrolled in photography classes
at school. Taking his camera wherever he went, he documented his adolescence
with his Minolta 35mm SLR; whether it
was capturing the energy from live punk rock and hardcore shows or skateboarding sessions with his friends. Fast forward almost 30 years later, and Cam Nikkel
is still the same man with a 35mm SLR, although he has become infinitely more adept at his craft.
With the skilled eye of an impassioned artist, Nikkel manages to focus in on his subject in a way that encapsulates their character while keeping them comfortable in their natural surroundings.
A DSLR was added to Nikkel’s camera arsenal in 2008, but to this day he still prefers shooting B&W film with 35mm SLR and medium format cameras.
