Daily Nice curator Jason Evans celebrates happenstance in stunning new book

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Few creatives have as an instinctive grasp of what makes a great image than Jason Evans. He understands that mysterious alchemy of colour, texture, composition, light and meaning that come together to make an exciting photograph as he proves every single day on his amazingly consistent Daily Nice blog. So it was with great joy that we discovered that Jason has just published a new book – NYLPT – bringing together pictures collected in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo. Steeped in the traditions of street photography with which he is obsessed, Jason’s images celebrate the delightful accidents of happenstance by layering exposures to create unexpected juxtapositions, remixing our urban environments.

He says: “Sometimes you visit a place and it looks exactly as you expected it to, like it does in pictures or on TV or at the movies. It’s like a feeling of nostalgia for something you’ve never known.” Recognising this feeling is one thing, managing to recreate it visually quite another but Jason has shown he is both willing and able to take on such a task.

NYLPT is published by Mack is out now.
