My name is Dennis Nikols. Most of the images at AIFI were made with a Cannon Rebel XT, using a variety of Cannon and Sigma lenses. EXF Technical Information is attached to most images.
You came to this page to learn something about me and As I Found It. I can only speak for myself but my life experience has taught me, I am anything but alone. Looking back as far as my memories go, my life has been one of constant exploration, a continual mix of experiencing and reflecting. I got my first camera as a Christmas present when I was 11. I have been telling stories and making images ever since.There is a philosophy behind the title, As I Found It. Those words have of course several interpretations. From the journalistic point of view, I am not a journalist, they have not been retouched, nothing added and nothing subtracted. That is, they are an accurate record, I hope well presented, of the world, as I found it. These images capture a mood and often a theme. They record both the reality of the moment and emotions of the recorder at the same time. Every image is its own narrative and through narrative we make sense of the world. That world is as broad or as narrow as we allow ourselves to find it. Dennis
