Young self taught photographer, Ymy Nigris walk the trails of the world with the gaze of a poet. He spend a year in the Art-School of Nantes, which he left to travel. He especially lived in Australia and in Berlin where he was working as a mixologist. He left this city where he had finally opened a bar in order to devote his time and energy to the development of his artistic career. Exploring the concept of photographic poems, between documentation and dreams, questioning human kind and his relation to the environment, his work is marked by his practice of drawing and painting. He lives between the road, some travels and a small village in the south west of France.
