NED 2_NED3450_edited.jpg

Nedim Nazerali is a British Photographer, Director and Artist.  His professional approach is to co-create an interpersonal space with his clients, enabling him to be close enough to contribute to a collaborative vision but remote enough so as to observe and capture his subjects’ in their most authentic and intimate moments.  Through this personal reportage style, Ned’s photography captures a visual narrative into the unique ways in which his subjects occupy their own bodies, express their self-beliefs and inhabit their private spaces.  

 

Ned 's career began in 2008 after exhibiting his photographic series 'The Lost Parade' at numerous galleries around London including The Royal Academy of Arts. He photographed people who wore military clothing as part of their everyday attire, exploring the power of their uniform and what it spoke about their place in today's society. After a successful tour, Ned was offered his first commission by the Metropolitan Police where he photographed portraits of real life officers wearing every single uniform in the force for their in-house book. 

Ned's striking portraiture work lead to portfolio and editorial commissions in the creative and entertainment industries as well as collaborations with prestigious brands including Samsung, Cartier, Topshop, Bates Hats, Ozwald Boateng and Burberry to name a few.

Ned also made connections in the music scene, where met the young Rita Ora and captured her portraits for the TV Series 'The Rita Ora Diaries'. The success of this lead him to work more with Rita and he was given the opportunity to shoot her promotional images for the release of her Debut Album. Ned continued to make a strong impression in the music scene and has directed multiple music videos and narrative driven film for live concerts. He has also shot numerous record covers and portraits for the likes of Paloma Faith, Leonn, Inglorious and 5-time Grammy Award winning The Swingles.

In 2017, Ned worked on a two year project with musician Wrenne, directing film for her multi-media show.  During this time a unique style of art flourished within Ned's visual language. He used body paint to strip away all social identity of Wrenne, transforming and photographing her as a released soul in bodily form on earth. The image was admired greatly and was used for the album artwork and campaign for her European tour, including a feature on the front cover of the Luxury Edinburgh Magazine. 

 

Since, Ned has been combining digital art with paint in his more creative work and has used this technique with artists for music videos as well as in numerous album artworks. Most recently he has been producing and exhibiting artwork under the name NART and continues to body paint his subjects like a fresh canvas, transforming them into avatars and symbols of powerful messages, exploring themes such as identity, empowerment and the limitless possibilities of the human spirit. Ned's final medium combines tactile fine art with innovative technology including LED Lightboxes, Projections, Giant Photographic Prints and Street Murals, creating an interactive and immersive experience for his audience, whilst strengthening the sense of unity within communities

Supporting our young and future creatives, Ned holds workshops to train and teach students in photography, art and film, then mentors them throughout production towards a final multi-media show. In partnership with creative performing art charities such as Union Dance and Neon Elevate, the aim is to open up the arts sector to every young person, educating and supporting them in creatively expressing themselves to the world.
