Nolan McCants

Nolan W. McCants is an award-winning global fine art photographer. He has immersed himself in diverse cultures worldwide, capturing breathtaking photographs in over 30 countries. His inquisitive nature and insatiable desire to experience different ethnicities and customs serve as inspiration for his photography, which evokes imagination and emotions while unveiling the world’s rich cultural treasures. With his remarkable “eye for the extraordinary in the ordinary,” he captures the essence of life, drawing viewers into the intimacy of each moment.

In 2020, during the onset of the pandemic lockdown, Nolan embarked on a journey through the streets of Chicago, where he skillfully captured striking images of the desolate urban landscape. These powerful visuals later became known as “The Stillness Series,” which was featured as a photo essay as part of the Arts Alliance Illinois’ Arts & “VAX TO GET BACK” project.
