Harry James Turner is a photographer and filmmaker from the Sunshine Coast, Australia. His work crosses themes of traditional social documentary photography with contemporary portraiture, creating space for boundless possibilities to form. He engages with closeness and ardor while revealing his subject's nature perfectly.
Harry studied documentary photography at University of Arts London, learning traditional darkroom printing techniques and research-based practice. His early projects focused on documenting fringe groups and sub cultures in London. Harry's skateboarding films and photography demonstrates his ongoing commitment to community, representation and civic discourse.
His 'Undercroft' photographs capture the life of London's Southbank space and its occupants, where skaters turn dancers in space against concrete and railings as masculine disobedience is diverted to something subversively heroic, collaborative and cohesive (Wullschläger, 2020).
