Harley Weir’s strikingly organic compositions seem to be made out of the same colour and textures as an Egon Schiele painting. Her photographs are mysterious and unguarded, and there is something very personal and pure about the way that she captures her subjects.
Harley has done stunning editorial work for publications like AnOther Magazine, Australian Vogue, i-D and Dazed and Confused and she’s worked for clients like Stella McCartney and Topshop. We like her hushed and secretive personal work the best though, as it takes pleasure in simplicity, in the fall of a shadow, the movement of wind, or the patterns created by the freckles on a young girl’s cheek.
In an interview with Bullett Magazine which you can read here, Harley describes what she is trying to achieve with her photographic work: “I just want to move someone. It doesn’t really matter what emotion it is really – whether someone’s disgusted, or it reminds them of love or anything like that. Any emotion, I would be very happy. It’s so difficult to move people.”
