Nathan Cyprys is an artist and photographer based in Toronto, Canada (BFA OCAD ’10). Nathan’s art practice is both conceptual and documentary based in approach, ranging from capturing landscapes of the United States on a large format camera, to shooting portraiture and still-life in a studio environment. His most recent project, Cosmichronos, explores astrophotography and the cosmic perspective. Nathan’s work has been awarded by PDN, American Photography and The Magenta Foundation. Some of his clients include Nike, Hudson’s Bay Company, Porter Air, The Globe & Mail and Fast Company.
Since the 1980s saw the prevalence of color photography, the American road trip has become a rite of passage for many emerging photographers. Neighbour State explores the American landscape with the curiosity of a young Canadian perspective. Growth and decay are discovered living side by side across a nation dotted with tourist attractions. Perhaps it’s the nature of transience, which allows the line between the banal and the remarkable to blur and dissipate.
