Niki BOON - Photographer




Contemplating Niki Boon's photos means reconnecting with your own childhood. Every picture evokes a disturbing memory from this unspoiled childhood. The photographic impact is powerful and combines the intimate, the instant and the impressive truth of emotions captured by the author.


« I grew up on a farm in rural New Zealand, with a childhood barefoot, wild and free. In part my photographic work pulls from my childhood freedoms and adventures that still exist so strongly in my mind. »
