Nicolas Evariste – graphic designer and webmaster by trade, started with photography in 2006 opened his own exhibition gallery in 2013, in Montmartin sur mer (France), to present his work. From the beginning, he has preferred to work in black and white and in square format, to emphasize the importance of minimalistic aesthetic beauty.
Dark Zoo is the product of several expeditions to various French wildlife parks. Through this series of animal portraits, Nicolas is trying to convey emotions while attempting to disregard the prefabricated environment of the zoo, and so focus entirely on the subject in hand.
The curves, looks, postures, with their stark contrasts, shot in an original way, result in a highly graphic, minimalistic series of images.
