Nyk Sykes was born in Sydney, Australia and raised in Australia and the UK. Sykes had a long career as a Graphic Designer in Editorial and Advertising before adding photography in 2002. Since 2007 photography has been his principal creative practice.
The trick with photography, is to find the stillness of the soul. To the curves of the catwalk, through the glamour of the game, in the blinding noise of battle — we must be still. As we waltz through the wedding, scrum the red carpet, run with the riot — we must move, and be still. We hold in our hands, the site of our seeing — we hold in our sight, the heart of our vision. As the light fades, the stillness grows — so still the soul takes us, out of sharp sight, into vast vision.
