The Nerve


What would you call it…

If an incoming stream of celluloid colours could gently pry out a drawer of emotions directly from your locked chest of memories? A drawer filled with the comforting feelings of times gone by. The warmth of pushing your winter-nipped toes down into your dad’s favourite socks. The wiggle and giggle of a small child’s laughter as they clutch at a Ben & Jerry’s receipt.

The forgotten memory of your first real kiss, and the rush that you felt the first time you travelled alone… Or the rattle of the oversized cookie tin covered in bumper stickers that you travelled in.

What is it about looking at one unfamiliar picture, that can make you feel all of these familiar things?

Ghost Nerve isn’t about pixel perfect, tack sharp photography. It is about something more. Its about emotion. Its about Magic. Its where the lines of my imagination become your reality. This is the way I feel the world and find its colours.

The Author

Dimitri Zaik is a colourblind artist that grew up in the jungles of Ceylon. Over the years spent entwined in the wild he forged an unbreakable bond with mother earth and all her creatures.

Drawing upon this bond for inspiration, he has worked tirelessly – be it from the jungles he calls home, the great depths of the oceans or the hidden wonders of the Himalayan mountains – to develop and hone his own, peculiar, art of photography. Uniquely able to see beyond the distractions and facades of a vibrant, kaleidoscopic environment- Dimitri uses achromatic and colour warped palates to emulate the world he truly sees. His unabashed predilection for soul and the wonders of untainted emotion allows him to capture each of his subjects in a captivatingly honest and raw way.

Devoted to the idea of creating art for all the senses, Dimitri is also an award winning musical composer and in the process of compiling his first novel.
