Nick Zinner

Nick Zinner is an integral part of the New York art and music scene as well as guitarist for the band „Yeah Yeah Yeahs“. He studied photography at Bard College, New York and in Lacoste, France.
In the upcoming exhibition, Nick Zinner presents his series of photos „Slept in Beds“. Zinner about this series: „I was obsessed with documenting time when I was younger as soon as I realized it fades. This series began before I was in a traveling band, with all night exposures of myself sleeping using a pinhole camera with a polaroid back. I was searching for evidence and a memory of a time and space that I would inevitably forget about. I always loved the work of The Bechers and Sophie Calle, the cataloguing and the playful fixation. When our band began to travel and tour, I documented everything – every crowd, every bed. I didn’t want it all to disappear, especially as so much of the structures were the same – the people, details and locations different. I wanted to have a souvenir from each experience, each place, where there’s a beauty and a loneliness that a million songs have been written about.“

Nick Zinner has produced a number of photography books, including his recent collaboration with Zachary Lipez and Stacy Wakefield, Please Take Me Off the Guest List, published by Akashic Books.
