Xavier Nuez Light Paintings

Xavier Nuez is an acclaimed, award winning art photographer whose unusual, innovative and painterly approach to lighting and photography has created a distinct celebration of all things scary, ugly or boring.

The New York Times has called his Alleys & Ruins series a masterpiece.

As he says, “You don’t need to stand in front of something interesting to be a better photographer”

He and his wife Nikki run the Chicago studio (Nikki with a little more grace and calm), and together they travel the country doing some of the nation’s best art fairs.

His photographs have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries internationally, including the Illinois State Museum in Chicago; the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in California, and the San Diego Art Institute.

His work is in numerous collections worldwide – personal, corporate and public – including those of the University of Richmond Museum in Virginia; the Plains Art Museum in Fargo, ND; the Illinois State Museum; Mr. Danny DeVito, and Ms. Angela Lansbury.
