Nigel Swinn

Wellington, NZ

Nigel Swinn is a 57 year old New Zealander who, after a successful design career in Australia, is rediscovering his identity by documenting his homeland – a country and people lost and found at the edge of the earth.

His first exhibition at FHE Galleries in Auckland was a critical success with the New Zealand Herald describing it as a “gripping exhibition… confrontational and meditative at the same time”.

Nigel is currently working on a series through the prisons of New Zealand to mark the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.

He divides his time between homes in New Zealand and Australia.
