Nik S. ClementsNik S. Clements earned his BFA in Theater from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA and worked as a professional actor for nearly a decade. When his son Kyan was born in 2005, he was moved to begin documenting his childís life, honoring the bits and pieces of his everyday existence through photographs. Soon thereafter, in Spring 2006, he was accepted into the Photography program at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA, where he is currently pursuing his Master of Fine Arts in Photography.

Most recently, Nikís solo show Sekai was on display at both The Walton Gallery in Newtown, PA and GalleryPrint in Hudson, WI. Prior to these solo exhibitions, his photographs were chosen for display at the Biggs Museum of American Art; the Center of Fine Art Photography (2007, 2008 and 2009); Morpho Gallery; Phillips Mill Gallery; Still Point Gallery; Upstream People Gallery; Projekt30 Gallery; the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts (2007 and 2008); and the Academy of Art University Spring Show (2007 and 2008). In 2009, he was selected as a finalist in the 29th Annual College Photography Contest and received an Artist of Distinction award from Still Point Gallery for his project Mehoopany. In 2008, he received Honorable Mention in the IPA 2008 Professional Photographer of the Year competition and his project Mehoopany placed 2nd in the Best Portfolio category at the 2008 San Francisco Spring Show. His photographs have been published in Photographerís Forumís Best of College Photography 2009, GalleryPrintís POW, F-Stop Magazine, FILE Magazine and GOMMA magazine, as well as used in several academic textbooks at both Minnesota State University and the Academy of Art University.

Nik currently lives in Newtown, PA with his wife Anitra and son Kyan. They are excited to be expecting another son this summer (2009).
