The global coronavirus pandemic has affected changes on a global scale. It has also affected my art. Typically I am a landscape and travel photographer, however due to the lockdowns and lack of travel opportunities I have chosen to explore new ways of making imagery. As such, I have attempted to create abstract images using techniques borrowed from portrait photography as well as exploring abstraction through the lens of macro photography.

Nathanael Cox is a New Jersey based photographer. He originally learned 35mm photography in the late 2000s when dark rooms were still prevalent and digital photography hadn’t yet completely dominated the landscape. After a taking a long break, and a few detours, he started to learn digital photography and resumed exploring the world through his lens. Nathanael lists Stephen Wilkes and Peter Lik as major influences/inspirations. His style leans towards breathless landscapes and sprawling cityscapes.
