About Simon HARSENT
Award-winning UK photographer Simon Harsent initially visited Sydney in 1987 ‘to see a bit of the world’. By the time he moved to New York ten years later – and despite never thinking he would settle in Australia – he was flitting between the two cities, and today has homes in both. His somewhat nomadic existence and the way it enables him to constantly see the places in new lights has informed his creativity enormously, both as an internationally exhibited photographer and co-founder of interdisciplinary creative agency The POOL Collective. We spoke about how new cultures have affected his work, and a few valuable tips he's picked up along the way.
