This book has neither future nor past. It is about the present, the Now, and all of those little things that occur daily, right in front of my eyes. It is about how hard it can be to stop the endless chattering of the mind, conscious or subconscious, all the “must do”, “must have”, “must be”; thoughts, impulses, obligations, imagined and real. This book reflects the urge to stay, to pause and to remain in the present, but it also touches upon the comfort and strength that is gained when achieving this. I want these images to stay – because nothing is as intense, as real, as vivid and as powerful as remaining present.

Nicolas Wormull







Nicolás Wormull (1977) born in Santiago, Chile but grew up in Sweden where he was formed as a photographer. Currently he lives in Chile where he works as a freelance photographer for major newspapers and magazines in Scandinavia and Chile.
In my photography I often explore the concept of the family, the nostalgia of the past, close relationships, encounters with and the sense of (lack of) belonging.
I have always been strongly influenced by my personal history and my family is a theme that I keep coming back to, just as the need to explore the duality of having grown up in two different worlds.
