About The Jeremy Nicholl Archive

Born in Northern Ireland, Jeremy Nicholl began his career in London, rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the UK's leading news photographers. In 1986 he was invited to join a proposed new national newspaper, the Independent, becoming a core member of an award winning editorial team.

In 1989 he left the paper to concentrate on longer term documentary photography, and since 1991 has specialised in reportage from across Russia and the Former Soviet Union, while taking time out to work on assignment photography and personal projects elsewhere.

Nicholl's work has appeared in a wide range of publications around the world and been shown at numerous international festivals and exhibitions. He has also won a number of awards, including World Press Photo and Interfoto, Russia's leading contest for professional photographers.

In addition to his assignments for leading international publications he is known for generating his own projects. Best known for classical photojournalism, in recent years Nicholl has extended his interests to medium format portraiture with considerable success, making him one of the most versatile photographers working today.
