Nedim Nazerali is a Photographer and Director who has been capturing portraits for over decade, including commercial work for the Fashion and Music scenes.
His professional approach is to create an interpersonal space with his subjects 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 powerful, beautiful and intimate moments. Through his portraiture, Ned’s photography captures a visual narrative as an extension of himself into the unique ways in which his subjects occupy their own bodies, express their self-beliefs and inhabit their private spaces.
In the Fashion Scene, Ned has produced commercial work with prestigious brands including Cartier, Ozwald Boateng, Topshop, Casablanca and Burberry.
In the Music Scene, Ned has directed narrative-driven music videos, shot numerous record covers and portraits for the likes of Inglorious, Rita Ora, Paloma Faith, and 5-time Grammy Award winning The Swingles.
For many years, Ned has been producing and exhibiting art work under 'NART Studios'. He is currently combining photography and body paint, where his subjects become a fresh canvas for him to capture powerful portraits and abstract body parts, which explore themes such as identity, self-worth and the limitless possibilities of the human spirit. These are showcased with various medium such LED lightboxes, large prints, projections, and street murals, forming an interactive experience for his audience as well as strengthening the sense of unity within communities.
