NICK & CHLOÉ

NICK & CHLOÉ

Chloé Claverie and Nick West hail from the suburbs of their respective cities of Paris and Dublin and both came to photography through circuitous routes. Chloé started as an art director, working for brands such as Givenchy and S.T. Dupont with DDB in Paris. Nick launched a self taught photography career in London in 1996. Nick and Chloe’s’ work revolves around youth. Whereas their early work focused on kids and their imaginary tales, more recently they are more concerned with the how we look back on our childhood as “grown-ups”. How much the child inside us is relevant as we search for our identity as we go out into the world. Their work has been shown at the Hamburger Bahnhof and the Temporäre Kunsthalle in Berlin, BETC Magasins Generaux in Paris, The Gallery of Photography in Dublin and The V&A Museum in London and online with Studio 1316 Centre Pompidou, Paris.
