Skylar Nielson

Skylar was born and raised in Zion, Utah a land harboring a unique, almost alien landscape. Working as a hand on his family farm ingrained in him a relentless work ethic, the type of hands-on, old-school vigor that has translated to his role as a visual artist.

Continually viewing his path through open eyes while tempering it with a world-weary experience, Skylar has segued from assignments involving global advertising campaigns for automobiles and motorcycles, to intimate micro-documentaries on the working-class forging their own path against economic adversity. His photography and film-making adventures have shown him to be both an inquisitive student and budding master, his artistic endeavors span the earth, his trajectory always seeking out a new and unclaimed frontiers.
