Although I have retained all rights to most of my photographs, if there is one you want to use let me know. I'll probably be happy to let you use it.

As well as ghostvision to which I try and post a photograph every day week or so, occasionally I combine a photograph and some writing on Walk: slow blog.

    O Caritas says:

    "Nick's photos are like an anthropological study of New York City, or wherever he happens to be at any given moment. Whether it be a billboard, one of his meals, a buddhist shrine or other remnants of civilization (often recorded as a square circle!), his photographs speak of life in the big city -- its charms and its absurdities."

    Runs With Scissors says:

    "Why does it seem like half of Flickr is drawn to Niz's images?

    Through his images reminds us there's always an image to be captured. It can be on a desk, the ground, a puddle, the sidewalk or a wall...

    Obviously Niznoz has helped to define what Flcikr is about and has influenced others to follow."

    "Poor niz, living with the hard-drinking, wild-living, heavy partying Alphonse! Where he finds the time to take all those incredible photos, I'll never know.

    He also does a superb walking tour of NYC graffiti..."
