Biography

Nicolas Nabajoth is a photographer that lives and works in Guadeloupe. Intuitive photography lover, he questions a new vision of the world through the prism of Creole identity.

In the manner of Édouard Glissant or J.M.G Le Clézio, Nicolas builds his work on a "aesthetics of diversity", dear to Victor Segalen. He is a committed artist that believes in the effects of the art peripherization, he promotes a recognition of arts that come from "ultra-peripheral" regions, in a market where everyone can take his place.

In 2004, when the autonomous Port strikes occur, he decides to report this sector activity, real economic heartbeat of the country, and starts the harbour iconography of the archipelago.
In 2008, through the collective exhibition "The Districts tell us...", he shows the urban landscape metamorphosis and the social ties at Abymes, municipality of Grande Terre, subject of a urban renovation plan.

In early 2010, he is part of the artists selection chosen to represent Guadeloupe in "Kréol Factory" exhibition at the Grande Halle de la Villette, Paris.
Very interested in the ethnographical and socioeconomic aspects of Guadeloupe, his work fits in with an approach of local cultural heritage promotion.
