Nicholas Gervin


GERV is a self taught Photographer and artist. Born and bred in New England, United States, he grew up exploring his urban surroundings, documenting abandon structures and the graffiti art seen with disposable cameras as far back as 1992. He made the leap into digital photography around April of 2010, after being struck with a traumatic head injury and suffering from Post-Concussion Syndrome. He has battled tension headaches, fatigue and visual difficulties among many other health related issues for over four years now. Gerv shoots not only for the creative outlet, but also as a means of healing and recovery from his injuries. I guess you could say that exploring and art in general have been his motivation for a full recovery. Healing through creative processing and expression.
