Welcome

George Nicholson is currently working on his next exhibitions. The first titled "Black Light - from here to infinity", the exhibition will continue the journey Nicholson has been making exploring different aspects of perception. This is now scheduled for late 2012. A second exhibition called; "A French Journey", a series of images from rural France and Paris is also in production.

George Nicholson's photography has already been shown at three solo exhibitions: "Painting with Light", in November 2003, a retrospective, at the.gallery@oxo in London; "Made in Southwark - a photographic celebration of the hand" in 2004; and "Black and Light" in October/November 2006 at the.gallery@oxo.

His photographs have been used to illustrate a number of publications on London's urban fabric, including "Vision for London" in 1992; "Rivers of Meaning" in 1996; and "River Calling" in 2002.

In November 2005, his book of photographs of Craftsmen and Craftswomen in Southwark, London; "Made in Southwark - a photographic celebration of the Hand" - published by Civic Books, was launched at the Design Museum by Sir Terence Conran.

In November 2007 he completed the photography for the 250th anniversary cookbook for London's acclaimed Borough Market. Called "Borough Market Cookbook - Meat & Fish", the cookbook contains over 100 images in black & white, featuring 16 of the key "producers" who sell through the Market. Distinguished cooks, Sarah Freeman and Sarah Leah-Benjamin have devised over 150 recipes, as well as providing some useful tips on buying produce, and kitchen craft. The book also contains a short history of the Market.

In March 2008 he published an 80 page book - containing 38 new B&W images. Inspired by the Rodshenko exhibition at Tate Modern, the book is a snapshop of life in North End Road and its Market in Fulham, London. It contains a foreword by Evan Davis, Presenter of "Dragons Den" and former Economics Editor of the BBC.

His last exhibition in November 2006; "Black & Light", featured 46 black and white photographs of landscapes, portraits, interiors and still life. Among Nicholson's subject matter are the fish markets and the amazing Durga Puja Festival in Kolkata, India; landscapes and seascapes in England, Wales and Scotland; cafe and street life in London and Paris; craftsmen and women in Southwark, London; still life images and photographs from the Borough Market Cookbook.
