In this episode of ISO 400, we hear from Nicholas Gervin, a street photographer based in Portland, Maine. Photography for Gervin is a means of recovery as he has suffered a series of injuries, automobile and otherwise, and with his camera, he’s explored the places around him. There’s a raw and visceral quality to Gervin’s work that commands your full attention. Some photography allows you to passively receive it, but Gervin’s doesn’t allow any room for that. There’s an immediacy to it that grabs you.

For more of Gervin’s work, you can check out his website. A selection of his work and the episode are after the break.

As always, our music is provided by Yuki Futami, a New York-based jazz musician.
