Born in Canterbury, England, multi award-winning photographer, Philip Lee Harvey has travelled the globe in search of his subjects, finding them everywhere from the dark drama of a Haitian voodoo ceremony to the stark brightness of Bolivian salt flats.
He believes photography should convey the emotion of places and people rather than functioning simply as a descriptive guide. He has spent the past 20 years perfecting his art, researching and preparing shoots and then working spontaneously to capture a moment.
His images focus on the character of people and places and are acclaimed for their graphic quality, use of light and composition. For Philip, photography acts as a physical and emotional adventure. His work is always a journey and an exploration of the perfect moment.
Philip’s work has been exhibited widely in both Europe and the Americas and can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the world.
Winner of Travel Photographer of the year, he is also listed amongst Lürzer’s ArchiveTop 200 photographers.
