Nick Sethi is a 23 year old photographer living in Brooklyn, New York. After years of traveling the world assisting Terry Richardson and Jonathan Mannion, Nick has begun to make the same impact on the emerging photography scene. His first solo exhibition, NOME, is a culmination of two recent trips to India. Between living under a bridge for 3 months with homeless kids, to attending a festival with naked holy men doing yoga painted with ash, Nick exposes an unseen and intimate India that is overlooked by the locals, and rarely seen by any photojournalist. During his time there, Nick was a guest of honor at a homeless wedding, taught some street kids how to skateboard, lived with holy men hanging weights from their ball sacks, and eventually got chased out of town by a knife-wielding junkie mafia; and has the photos to prove it!
