About James Niven :
Born in Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND & having lived in Melbourne, AUSTRALIA Suva, FIJI & Los Angeles, USA, I now call Sydney home. My initiation into Photography started on a 1986-87 road trip around Australia working on farms & fruit picking to sustain our way & was fully realised the following year on a trip that took me through India, Nepal & Bhutan. This trip really opened my eyes to the world around me, particularly my volunteer work for Mother Teresa in Calcutta, my resilience of youth enabling me to get through a rewarding, but also often arduous time. From that moment on, I’ve traveled with my film camera wherever I go, observing & capturing scenes from around the globe.
Photography for me, personally, is about being present and in the moment, giving me a clearer perspective of the world around me. It awakens my senses. Provides me artistic expression. But most importantly, enjoyment.
