Henry Osman, Form 1. Detail

Henry Osman | Forms

Henry Osman is a photographer who has a love for environments and visual arts. His work accentuates this, drawing attention to the natural forms and abstractions of the object being captured. By  primarily using black and white photography he is able to delineate the true state of the subject at hand, creating an image that forces us to question what we are seeing. The Cornwall based photographer has traveled from Europe, to Africa, to New Zealand acquiring a range of skills and experiences during his time spent traveling. Consequently the  photographer has matured as an artist and developed the ability to anatomise the idea of perspectives and formations.

Looking into the construction of the natural object and the traditional way in which photography captures such matter, the series ‘Forms’ was created; a thought provoking collection that shows foliage in a way that hasn’t been explored until now. Henry Osman experiments with visual construction of the natural object – dissecting the structures, shapes and tones of organic matter. In this series we are compelled to really examine what it is that we are truly seeing, and are struck by images that have no consideration for tradition, which is not always a bad thing when it comes to art. The photographer digitally manipulates his imagery to expose pixels, creating an effect that can only be described as ‘noisy’ and dynamic. The result is an image that is obvious to the mind as to what the object is, but not so obvious as to why it appears in the way that it does.

This is an experiment that Henry hopes will encapsulate the audience and encourage them to decode the aesthetic of imagery that has been created. The series will be exposed for the first time at Bristol’s Royal West of England Academy. The exhibition in which Forms will feature is called Incito; the aim of the collective exhibition is to inspire, excite and to create a spark. This unique approach is sure to exalt natural forms and inspire the viewers. Visit the instillation from 6th – 14th of July.
