The works of Trace Heavens mark the results of James Nizam’s architectural interventions and studio-based explorations made to channel and record light.

Where his earlier series Anteroom transformed abandoned rooms into straightforward pinhole camera obscures, Nizam’s use of a perforated room is now less concerned with bringing the outside world in and recording it, than it is with using the light of that world to produce starkly beautiful visual effects that verge on the palpable.
