Xavier Nuez

Xavier Nuez’s photographs have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries internationally, including the Illinois State Museum in Chicago, IL; the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in California; the Attleboro Art Museum in Massachusetts; and the San Diego Art Institute.

His work is in numerous collections worldwide, including those of the Illinois State Museum; the University of Richmond Museum in Virginia; the Plains Art Museum in Fargo, ND; the Norfolk Southern Collection; the Vicente Fox Library and Museum in Mexico; Mr. Danny DeVito; and Ms. Angela Lansbury.

Xavier’s family is from Spain; he was born in Montreal and lives in Chicago. Two or three nights a week he can be found at Johnny’s IceHouse playing hockey.

With a 50 yr old film camera and battery powered colored lights, I shoot very long exposures (10-30 minutes) in dark city corners. Through my lighting, these stark places instead become beautiful and almost whimsical.

The large negatives are scanned and the final photos are ultra chrome inkjet prints.
