Back to Artists



Nick Danziger was born in London but grew up in Monaco and Switzerland. He began travelling from a young age. He studied at The Chelsea School of art and gained an MA in Fine Art.
He was awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Fellowship in 1982 which enabled him to spend 18 months on the ancient Silk Route from Turkey to China, travelling on foot or by traditional local transport, documenting everything he saw in the form of diary entries and Photographs. This then formed his first book, Danziger’s Travels in 1987 swiftly followed by Danziger’s Adventures in 1993.
His third book was published in 1996 called Danziger’s Britain which inspired his photographic book The British, which won the Best Monochrome illustrated Book in 2002 and was selected as one of the best Photography Books of The Year by The Sunday Times. This book included Nick’s ground-breaking studies of Tony Blair and which won him the World Press Photo 1st prize.
Nick also has works in public collections including the National Portrait Gallery in London, the National Media Museum in Bradford and the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow.
Danziger has been travelling the world for 25 years taking photographs and making documentary films. Most of his work is based on people living in difficult circumstances, particularly young people. In 1996 Nick Danziger adopted an Afghan boy and two girls from a Kabul orphanage.
In 2007 he was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of The Royal Photographic Society and he is holder of the Royal Geographical Society’s Ness Award.
