Marcel Proust's France Notecards
Set of 5 Notecards with Encelopes
About the Artist: He received his degree in French at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and continues to work as a freelance photographer. Nic’s photographs of places (Paris, Illiers-Combray, Cabourg) that inspired Marcel Proust were published in The Dictionary of Literary Biography: Marcel Proust: A Documentary Volume (Gale/Cengage Learning, 2013). The Revue des Deux Mondes, in the June 2013
issue, commemorating the centennial of Swann's Way, characterized Nic’s photographs as “splendid.”
His photographs were featured in the centennial exhibit (November 8-December 31, 2013), commemorating the anniversary of Swann’s Way at the Mervyn H. Sterne Library (UAB) that holds one of the world’s largest collection of books, letters, and documents related to Proust. In addition, his photos of Proust’s France were selected for a special boutique at the Birmingham Museum of Art offering collector’s items related to France during the highly successful Delacroix exhibition that ran from February 22 to May 18, 2014. Two of Nic's photographs taken at Illiers-Combray appear in Benjamin Taylor's book, Proust: The Future's Secret, published by Yale University Press in October 2015.
