Mishka Henner Biography

Mishka Henner is a key practitioner among the generation of artists redefining the role of photography in the internet age. He views the capturing of images by an endless array of automated and manual cameras as a unified representation of the world with infinite detail, accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Much of his work navigates through this vast digital terrain to focus on key subjects of cultural and geo-political interest. His process often involves extensive documentary research combined with the meticulous construction of imagery from materials sourced online.
