NICK LEARY IS AN INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED FINE ART AND COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHER WHOSE WORK HAS TAKEN HIM TO THE MOST REMOTE CORNERS OF THE WORLD.
With a career behind the lens spanning over twenty years, Leary commenced his professional career in New York, where he expeditiously became one of the most sort after photographers in his field, shooting for high profile fashion publications and clientele including Vogue, GQ, Giorgio Armani, Moet Hennessy, Cate Blanchet, Hugh Jackman and Miranda Kerr, to name a few.
Leary’s inspiration for Fine Art photography was born during a month long trip to Titjikala, a remote aboriginal community near Alice Springs in Australia’s Northern Territory. It was here that Leary was taught the history of the Aboriginal Dreamtime by an Elder. Fascinated by the culture and heritage of the indigenous people and their natural soulful spirit and respect of the land, Leary was determined to capture this raw beauty and emotion with his photography. Leary’s first Fine Art exhibition ‘Soul of the Titjikala Colourful’ was unveiled later that year (2005) at Sotheby’s in Sydney.
