Born in East Africa, Zed Nelson graduated from Westminster University, London, with a degree in photography and filmmaking. Having gained international recognition and numerous awards as a documentary photographer, Nelson’s recent work adopts an increasingly considered, in-depth approach to reflect on contemporary social issues through long-term personal projects. Nelson’s seminal book Gun Nation - a disturbing reflection on America's deadly love affair with the gun – was published in twelve countries and awarded five major international photography prizes. Love Me, Nelson’s second book, reflects on the cultural and commercial forces that drive a global obsession with youth and beauty. The project was recently nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. Nelson’s latest project Hackney - A Tale of Two Cities explores the London borough that he has lived for most of his life. Nelson’s work has been exhibited at Tate Britain, the ICA and the National Portrait Gallery, and is in the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum. His In This Land series is on view at the Noorderlicht Photogallery (Netherlands) through March 17, 2013.
