about me

Harry Pearce

I am a photographer, artist, writer and an educational/learning specialist with degrees spanning the arts, humanities, science and business; significantly, a Master of Studies degree in Literature and Arts from the University of Oxford and a First Class Honours degree in Creative Arts through the Open College of the Arts. I also trained with the BBC in television news production/journalism and have studied a wide range of creative courses, for example, Bookbinding with the London College of Communication.

Whilst photography forms the key visual driver for most of my work, I take an interdisciplinary approach in exploring ideas and concepts - it is the 'idea' that drives the output. Ongoing projects explore the use of mixed-media (including writing, drawing and stage-sets) in expressing these ideas and concepts based upon my interests in visual communication, cultural studies and the active engagement of art to enhance business communication and leadership.

I am currently working on a new exhibition of my creative work, alongside several publications which are coming to fruition after long-term development. I live in Saudi Arabia, helping business executives to create exceptional presentations; my experiences living in this fascinating country are what inspires my current work, exploring cultural (dis)connection and memory & meaning in geographically disparate families.
