Dust particles rising through the projector beam of a darkened London theatre formed the genesis of of Nicholas Hughes’s series. The series examines the space between the world that people inhabit and that which nature still claims as its own. In this intermediary space between the two, the photographer seeks to explore the essence of the human spirit and its relationship with nature.

With a deep environmental concern running through all his work, Hughes acknowledges the limits humanity have imposed on the natural world and contemplates the future for both.

Nicholas Hughes said: In experiencing our insignificance I found reassurance. We can but amount to mere scratches upon the Earth’s surface. No more than splashes of colour before we return to dust.

Aspects of Cosmological Indifference will be on disaply at The Photographers’ Gallery’s Print Sales Space and Prints will be available to purchase with prices starting at £800.
