Infrared photography always amazes me in its ability to transform new places, creating a visual experience that can elevate an already incredible place. Oregon, with its otherworldly and super diverse landscapes, made for a perfect match with IR…

World Underwater

A frightening amount of people choose not to believe in climate change, and those who do may have a hard time imagining its effect on our planet. Inspired by a trip to Venice, Italy, the series World Underwater explores the future of Earth. It imagines our world absolutely overwhelmed by global floods and rising waters…

Concrete Jungle

Concrete Jungle is a continuing series of memories real and imagined from growing up at the edge of midwestern suburbs. Children’s neighborhood folklore, the late night creature feature, the no-mans lands between the wild and the tamed…

In The Night

In The Night is a look at the insidious nature of body dysmorphia; an absurd look at the objective anatomical shape, and the insecurities that come along with it. As a queer man, I stand at a strange intersection of privilege and marginalization. Media often allows…

Water Series

One's body is the vessel we carry ourselves around in, shifting and fluctuating as we as people grow and shift and change. While many media outlets try to commodify that vessel, forcing it into a different shape, forcing it to hold more here, less there, I instead wanted to liberate the body from that perspective…

As part of a year-long project, Nimke documented regional folktales by traveling to spots associated with the tales, finding local people willing to be recorded as they read the stories aloud, and capturing them and the areas in photographs.

Under The Storm

Every once in a while, in Madeira, a storm reminds us that it’s a semi-tropical island. Every one runs to the ocean to see the big waves. I go to the mountains to see the result of entropy. Fog fills the landscape, teasing curiosity and imagination, what’s not to love.

A House, A Home

In the series, A House, A Home, I isolate ubiquitous household objects as a way to begin to investigate traditions of domestic American life. My observations are rooted in my own personal indulgences, expectations, and questions, as well as how I see myself existing within this larger system…

Inland Madeira

There is another side to an Island know for it’s good weather and welcoming people. A place in penumbra, between Europe and Africa, between the XXI’s century and an older way of life.

Plant Love

I photograph plants that appear soft and gentle, but still have a powerful image. I also explore different shapes and forms that I see throughout nature and try to present the plants as if they were growing wild in a jungle, lush with vegetation.

Bar Beach

This series is called: “Ghosts of Bar Beach – bar beach was here!” My approach to image making is experimental. I conceive, orchestrate and deliver images so charged that one might experience their weightiness. The weightiness is achieved when the images resonate with their subject matter, and I refer to this as the cultural payload, an energy which provides cognitive and perceptual resonance.
