Harry’s work exists between the worlds of documentary and conceptual photography. He is interested in depicting scenes of everyday life where reality and fantasy intersect, exploring this theme in both New Zealand and Australia. Heavily inspired by the history of painting, Harry works with a traditional 4×5 camera with negative film as a way to slow down his practice in a fast-paced digital world.

This year he will be a part of a special project at the show, the Emerging Artist Project; keep your eye on this space for details to come later.

He is currently completing a Bachelor of Photographic Design with Honours at Massey University
