Photographers

HARRY COCK (1952 Assen) was educated at the School for Photography in The Hague (1972-1975). After his training he made landscape and city photography in the north of the country. He also takes portraits and architecture photos in a distinctive style. That makes Harry an artist as well as a journalistic photographer. For this he earned the Grand Cultural Prize Drenthe 2018. This prestigious prize is a recognition for his total oeuvre of tens of thousands of photos over a period of forty years of photos in the Northern Netherlands. From 1 January Harry will exhibit miniatures in Galerie del Campo, which he has named “Neopolas”. These Neopolas start with a photo from the archive or made on the spot. An association with found materials, such as shards of household waste, hair from a shower drain or other photos where he cuts out parts, yields the following layers. And all this in the format of a polaroid photo. Website www.harrycock.nl
