My experiences in the darkroom have me hands on with the chemicals. I saw the results of this on the paper, but I couldn’t see how they physically reacted with my hand. That lead to this body of work, Hand Painted. I wanted to literally see how the chemicals ran and spread on my hands; how the two responded to each other to create what I was seeing on the paper.
Nicole Harrington, who was born and raised in Nebraska, has enjoyed photography since childhood. Running around her grandmother’s home with a 110 film camera taking pictures of the cats. She, however, didn’t fall in love with photography until her high school darkroom class. There, her wonderfully supportive teacher allowed Nicole to follow her own path. After a few years away from photography, she felt something was missing and returned to shooting again while teaching English in South Korea; and the spark was reborn. She found it was a way for her to explore the new culture she found herself becoming a part of. Upon returning to the states she began the study of photography at the New England School of Photography. She graduated in June of 2015. She specializes in black and white fine art and architectural photography.
