Working predominantly in large-format film photographs, Harry Culy observes everyday life in both Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. Working within the expanded documentary photography tradition, he produces depictions of quotidian scenes, often including vacant interiors, seascapes, landscapes, and people — which may hint at narratives beyond the picture plane. He is influenced by the Antipodean Gothic art movement.Read More
