Nevis Granum is an artist working within the framework of photography. He is interested in how images form the experience of looking and represent visual memory. His work considers how the photographic process can construct narratives within the image itself, and how these narratives shape an understanding of visual memory. The tension between personal subjectivity and perceived photographic objectivity, the organic subject and chemical/digital process, and the tangibility of the image are central in his work.
