Nicolas Evariste is a photographer from the Granville region, in the English Channel, and his first forays into photography were in 2006. From the outset, he favoured black and white and the square format. He thus places a lot of importance on aesthetic research and minimalism. He considers photography as a means of expression and escapism. He does not necessarily confront his images with reality, but shares a personal and artistic vision of the world we live in.
