Nathan is an artist and educator living in Chicago, IL. Utilizing photography to escape from the distractions of the modern world and become more aware of his surroundings, Nathan creates images of everyday surroundings and populated places that appear unfamiliar. Through abstract image-making and both experimental and formal approaches to the photographic process, Nathan attempts to reveal and transform the various details of our surroundings and present them in a new light.
