CINEMATOGRAPHY, SEXUALITY AND LUXURY MINIMALISM BY PHOTO GREGORY HARRIS

Gregory Harris is a fairly young but already very successful photographer who has been collaborating with leading glossy media and high-class brands on the planet for decades. Harris blows from every work with an inner power hidden in his models and revealing in front of the lens of his camera. This special balance of minimalism and fullness brought Gregory Harris worldwide fame and contacts with the most influential customers.

New Zealand American

The photographer was born in New Zealand, but received a professional education in neighboring Australia. Harris entered the Royal Institute of Technology in Melbourne, successfully graduated from it and went on an internship in the United States, to the famous photographer David Sims. He studied with the master for five years, after which he began his own career – very, very stormy.

From the first shots, the photographer’s own style became noticeable, in which laconic “strokes” were combined with a subtle game of shades and details. One of the first magazines to evaluate the potential of a beginner was the American Interwiew. For him, Harris did photoshoots in an “architectural”, broken and emphasized brutal aesthetics, to which, however, a share of the luxurious style characteristic of gloss was always mixed.

The ongoing collaboration with Interwiew has attracted the attention of other industry giants to a promising photographer. French, Italian and American Vogue, Dazed, WSJ, Oyster, M Le Monde and other publications began to collaborate with Harris. Large brands followed them, from Dior, Gucci and Cartier to Nike, The Gap and Rag & Bone.

Harris photographs illustrate articles in many magazines. First of all, American. Gregory has worked so well and successfully in the states that many journalists forget about his New Zealand origin. He is called an American, and he himself has long lived in New York, in Brooklyn. Together with his wife, he is raising a young son, managing to create shoots in all corners of the globe.

Hollywood, gloss, art and sports

Gregory Harris is one of the most sought after photographers and filmmakers in the West. He participates in multi-genre shootings, everywhere introducing his recognizable style – a combination of mannered sexuality with strict purism, depriving cadres of vulgarity. Thanks to the ability to make models especially attractive, alluring, preserving the details of the clothes they advertise, Gregory Harris has become a regular guest author of photo shoots of advertising campaigns. Among them are both classic and highly provocative.

When the legendary brand Brioni decided to renew the campaign and invited the largest Hollywood stars as ambassadors, it was Gregory Harris who photographed them. In his lens, Anthony Hopkins, Samuel L. Jackson and Harvey Keitel became the perfect black and white embodiment of the brand’s gentlemanly aesthetics. Impeccable costumes have become a frame for portraits of legends in the spirit of “the same” Hollywood.

No less successful shooting supermodels. Claudia Schiffer in the photographs of Harris becomes a cold cowboy girl, and Karlie Kloss becomes the couture goddess. Sasha Pivovarova walks the streets like the heroine of French films of the 60s, Cara Delevingne becomes an impudent hippie with pigtails in the shooting for DKNY. Harris posed for Gigi Hadid, Kate Underwood and other top models. One of the most audacious shootings was the campaign for the Bally brand, in which pregnant Irina Shayk participated. The situation did not stop the model from posing in an ultra-short mini, and thanks to the skill of the photographer, she looked no less attractive than usual.

Gregory Harris became the author of the photo campaign for the groundbreaking NikeLab project. With the support of Ricardo Tishi, June Takahashi, and Kim Jones, the brand decided to turn around the idea of ​​sportswear. To show that she can be avant-garde, sexy and in a weird way, a photographer was needed who could express this in the pictures. Gregory Harris did an excellent job. In his photographs, Joan Smalls and Travis Scott become the embodiment of modern art, balancing on the brink of the world of fashion and sports, and Nike equipment sets the shooting dynamics and tone.

Over the past couple of years, the photographer seems to have only “gained momentum.” He removes Nonny de la Pena for the cover of WSJ, works with representatives of the music industry and creates black and white landscapes in his usual graphic and concise manner. Gregory Harris also makes experimental mini-films – for example, by order of Holiday Magazine he created an unusual movie about his native New Zealand, its nature and indigenous people.
