Artist Statement: Nathan Cutler is a social documentary photographer. His practice is typically centred around capturing people’s stories, and often leans towards portraiture, comprising the interplay between subject, photographer and audience. His current project, Gents is a study of spaces and groups that are traditionally seen as masculine and their place within a modern society. By shaping an abstract narrative, drawn from his own experiences within these environments, Nathan highlights commonalities that exist in places and the people that inhabit them.
