Nigel Green completed a practice based PhD at University for the Creative Arts in 2008 which looked at the relationship between photography and the representation of modernist architecture and space. He has worked as a sessional lecturer in the photography department at UCA Maidstone since 2006.
His photographic work has been exhibited and published widely and in 2003 he completed a commission by Photoworks to document the power station complex at Dungeness in Kent. The book, which accompanied the project, was shortlisted for the 2004 Arles Festival Book Awards. Other major projects include ‘Transmodernity: Calais Reconstruction’ which documented the reconstruction architecture of the town and was published as a book in 2001 by the Calais Museum of Fine Art. Having a long-term interest in French reconstruction architecture he completed a project for the Picardy based photographic organisation Diaphane, which was exhibited and published in Amiens in March 2010. A selection of the work was also exhibited at the Arles photography festival in the same year.
Nigel came to photography through a fine art practice and continues to work on visual art projects alongside his purely photographic work. He also works as a freelance architectural and exhibitions photographer and his photographs have been included in many journals, papers and books.
He also undertakes commissions to produce work for exhibitions. In 2009 he was commissioned by the De La Warr Pavilion to photograph six buildings for ‘Mind into Matter’ which celebrated the 175th anniversary of the RIBA and in 2012 he was commissioned by the Royal Academy to undertake extensive documentation of Piccadilly for the exhibition ‘From Eros to the Ritz: 100 years of street architecture’.
