Neil Harman is an artist and educator working with photography. Whether photographing empty streets or making portraits of strangers; he sees the camera as a tool for processing change and sharing with others. Neil is fascinated by everyday and often overlooked public spaces that on the surface seem to reveal very little but connect with the viewer through their familiarity and evoke curiosity in their strangeness.
Kiosk is part of a series of photographs made in Berkeley, California as part of a studio residency with The Kala Art Institute. The series charts the local area of the studio seen from the point of view of an outsider trying to make sense of their environment. He was drawn to how the central kiosk structure stood out from its surroundings, seemingly caught between real and imaginary space.
Neil Harman works and lives in London, he holds an MA in Photographic Studies from The University of Westminster and has exhibited nationally and internationally.
