Graphis is pleased to present our recent Photography competition submissions: Nicholas Duers’ Skulls (image above) and Bleu de Chanel (image below).

His Skulls image is a personal project he embarked on this year, Duers wrote in his Graphis Portfolio. “While visiting the Southwestern US, I became fascinated by the skulls of the local Fauna.” He rigged the skulls into position and then photographed with PhaseOne and Hasselblad gear.  The response to the work has been resoundingly positive, he wrote. “Today, the project continues with more photography of skulls, exploring the Fauna of other regions.”

His image of Chanel’s men’s fragrance, Bleu de Chanel, for a US fashion retailer’s lookbook is another stunning entry.

Mr. Duers is a still-life photographer based in New york City, who currently works in his photo studio in midtown Manhattan. He specializes in fashion accessories, beauty products and luxury goods. He studied at Rochester Institute of Technology. His client list is extensive, including such names as Kenneth Cole, Lord & Taylor and Aeropostale, among others.

He is a past Graphis contributor, whose student work won a Gold in the New Talent Annual 2011, in addition to his Gucci Pour Homme II, which won a Gold in the Photography Annual 2013.
