Biography

Nicki Stager exposes photosensitive paper to colored lights, producing richly hued, abstract, painterly photographs entirely without the use of a camera. By working in this way, Stager seeks to blend painting and photography. Asked whether she considers herself a painter or a photographer, she embraces both definitions: “I’m delighted to be either, but I love it when someone declares that I’m a photographer and then a close friend, without prompting, corrects them by saying that I’m an artist who paints with light.”
