overview

Harold Naideau is a photographer, an artist, and an educator based in New York.

Harold Naideau blends the traditional qualities of fine art photography with the state-of-the-art technologies and techniques of digital imaging utilizing a changing array of modern materials and processes.

His vision spans the works of the Great Masters to his discerning attempts to clarify our complex world; one filled with disparate and conflicting imagery set amidst a changing, modern landscape that includes images from the parched plains of Death Valley in Nevada to the auto-parts dealers and body shops of Jerome Avenue in the Bronx.

Harold Naideau says “Every one of my successful images has a history contained within it that may not ever become apparent. We live in a world surrounded by millions upon millions of images and they become a part of our subconscious. They wake up with us as soon as we open our eyes every morning. My camera captures the movements and moments within the frame, in front of me. My perspective is dictated by the moment and no decisions are really deliberate. Everything has been pre-determined within our subconscious mind. We struggle to control what we show to others and are constantly aware of the power and effect of this very powerful medium-photography.”

Harold Naideau’s work is represented by The Chase Edwards Galleries in Oyster Bay and Sag Harbor, New York; The Winter Harbor Gallery in Greenport, New York; the B.J. Spoke Gallery in Huntington, New York and Soho Photo Gallery in New York City. His commercial work is represented worldwide by CORBIS / NYC.

He is currently in negotiations to have his book on graffiti, Women on the Wall, published for release in 2012.
