About Ian Harris
Born 1960, London, UK
Hailing originally from the suburbs of south-east London, Ian Harris is a photographic artist living and working in Somerset.
Based, in part, on an understanding of the world of political economy derived from thirty years of working within the financial markets of the City of London, he works within the tradition of straight photography to explore ideas of landscape perception, use and change as well as the impact of choices made by society.
Whilst taking a traditional approach to the medium, he regards the photograph as a multi-dimensional piece of discourse which might either be taken at face value or contain some ambiguous or allusive idea or information.
In 2018, he completed an MA in Photography from the University of Plymouth (2016-18).
