Neil Harman (b.1977) is a photographer based in South East London. His photographs are rooted in his fascination with how the camera organises the visible world into two dimensions, and with what photographs reveal as still moments when ostensibly nothing is happening.  His locations are often anonymous, yet also familiar to towns and cities across the world.  Graduating with an MA for photographic studies from University of Westminster in 2012, Neil Harman’s work has been shown both nationally and internationally in group exhibitions. He continues to develop his work through exhibitions and residencies and is Head of Photography at Burntwood School, Wandsworth, London.
