Melbourne photo media artist Harry Nankin has a new exhibition, briefly. It’s his PhD exhibition which will run for four days, closing this Friday.
“Harry Nankin is an Australian photographer and environmental artist. He often uses the camera-less ‘photogram’ or ‘shadowgram’ to record ecological phenomena: employing processes that are partly land art, partly performance and partly photography, he endeavours to turn the landscape itself into a camera.”
Harry’s website harrynankin.com shows the ambition of his large scale projects. Many of them employ giant sheets of photographic paper exposed directly to the landscape at night. He doesn’t take photographs of nature, nature itself makes the photograph.
