Nicholas Luchenbill is a US Army veteran.
I was born in Owosso, Michigan. I am a 10 year Army veteran that served 3 tours in the middle east. I currently live in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where I am studying photography at New Mexico State University. I have always been inspired by the power of the photography medium. I draw my inspiration from my life experiences, and the people that are in it. My personal work and what I am must passionate about involves Veterans and Veteran’s issues. For the past two years I have been volunteering with the MWR (Morale, Welfare and Recreation) office of Fort Bliss teaching basic photography classes to wounded Veterans and their families.
I believe that I can use photography to help some see what they are missing out in the world, and hope to inspire some like I was inspired. I create images concentrating on the aspects of mental health involving Veterans and Veteran families suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) using various photography techniques. I mainly use a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera to capture multiple images which I then put into a series or narrative to tell a certain story-line. I also use old images or found images to composite or collage together to create abstract images.
