Nicolas Sisto was born in 1982 in the French Alps. At 15-years-old, his dad offered him a Nikon Fe while on a trip in Italy and Sicily. Since, he has been shooting antique roman temples as well as his surroundings, which are mainly mountains and local architectural landmarks. Photography led Nicolas to architecture. Though he dropped photography during his studies, he began shooting again once he moved to Paris.
Represented by Salamatina Gallery, his past exhibitions include: Triumph of Caissa, Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, 2012; Souk at SAT, Montréal, 2012; Irène n.3, Paris, 2012; Silence de l’Instant, solo exhibition, Paris, 2010; and Reflexes, solo exhibition, Alpes d’Huez, 2009.
Artist Statement : « Since moving to Paris, I have been fascinated by the men and women living in this city. I consequently started shooting people I’ve met in Paris to explore and understand where my fascination comes from. I am extremely sensitive to graphic beauty in a photograph, but I also try to use this medium to run a psychological work, to enrich the work I do for my own architecture company. » Nicolas Sisto.
