Nicolas Floc’h

Over the last three decades, Nicolas Floc’h (b. 1970) has built an artistic career of great thematic and aesthetic coherence, and has achieved significant institutional and critical recognition.

His work mobilises the potential of underwater photography to discover new artistic imaginaries, and his photographs reveal a poetic dimension of enormous technical and aesthetic proficiency, establishing a sensitive perception of nature, biodiversity, and ecological phenomena.

At the invitation of MAAT, the artist did a ten-day residency in the Tagus Estuary, between Bugio and Castanheira do Ribatejo, in the summer of 2022. During this period, Floc’h had the opportunity to explore various underwater landscapes and ecosystems, expressing an artistic attitude that conveys pressing issues related to the defence of the environment and the sustainability of the planet.
