Did that image just change as you walked beside it? Look again. Yes, it did. Like our ever-shifting visual experience of the world, Howard Harris’s dimensional photo- graphic constructions merge aesthetics and technology to produce an intriguing new way of experiencing photographic art—with depth and the appearance of subtle differences from one moment to the next. Harris’s creations simulate the way we see. They mimic the complex process of perception by engaging the eyes, mind, and emotions in an intricate dance whose other partners are the changing light, our angle of view, and the space in which the work exists. The result is photographic art as you’ve never seen it before.
Howard Harris is a Techspressionist artist who has long been fascinated by both visual perception and design. The Denver, Colorado USA native earned a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute and a MID (Masters Industrial Design) from Pratt Institute in New York, studying with internationally renowned design theorist Rowena Reed Kostellow. Harris has spent more than 35 years combining design and technology where he has won many prestigious professional awards. Now, his creative energy has turned to his lifelong passion, photography. With an iconoclastic streak that had seen him consistently forging new directions in design, he was bound to approach the photographic image in an unconventional way as well. In 2017, Harris was granted a United States Patent Titled Apparatus and Method of Manufacturer for a Layered Artwork, proving the uniqueness and inventiveness of his photographic work. Since then, his work has appeared in many books and publications, such as ARTtour International Artists of the Decade, Art Collectors Choice Japan, International Contemporary Masters, and Top 10 Contemporary Artists, to mention a few. He has also been awarded Artists for a Green Planet Artist of the Decade, International Prize Raffaello, International Prize Giulio Cesare, International Prize Leonardo Da Vinci, International Prize Caravaggio, and more. He had served as a Trustee of The Kansas City Art Institute and has won the Who’s Who Worldwide Lifetime Achievement and the USA Small Businessperson of the Year. His work is shown internationally and represented by United States U.K., and European galleries.
