Too often our impressions of the Middle East are confined to panicky news bulletins, angry diatribes or gloomy editorials which is why David Harriman’s Of Biblical Proportions series is so successful. Slowing everything down he shows us different sides of the Holy Land, not so much challenging conventions as quietly but firmly suggesting we think in a more nuanced way about this quickly characterised region.
Stillness and solitude is a recurring theme in his accomplished portfolio, particularly in his series The Rust Belt which shows David’s incredible eye for the right shot is applicable across very different environments.
