Nic (Askew). From expeditions in the Congo, Amazon and Sahara to a Managing Directorship in Business, Nic’s eclectic earlier life took an unexpected and conscious turn in 2005 when a lucid dream to pick up a video camera and use it in a profound fashion consumed him with no doubt. Since that day he has used the camera to capture an unyielding experience of truthfulness, taking his film subjects far beyond the experience of the mind and deep into an inner and wiser world.

His Inner View Method has given rise to the acclaimed Soul Biographies Film Series, an experience of human presence viewed by millions.

Nic has set out to capture The Soul of This Human Race on film, in all its shades and from all four corners. So that we might see ourselves reflected in each other. So that we might see beyond all differences. So that we might come to remember that we each belong without condition. When one catches sight of an inner view of another everything changes.


He has worked in provocative fashion in some of the World’s most influential arenas, and has given a profound visibility to the seemingly ordinary person who it turns out is each a haunting reflection of us all.

More recently he realized that his work of the two most recent decades had been pointing to a  profoundly simple experience, that of surrender and an end to seeking. And that the direct experience of peace and belonging without condition is the contribution.

Pressed for a Bio, Nic often forwards his poem The Glorious Ignoramus . ‘I don’t know. But I know that I don’t know. I love that I don’t know. That I can never know for sure. So I’ve stopped looking to understand you. Or convince you. And now, finally, I can see you. I am a glorious ignoramus.’
