HERO Framed is our ongoing series platforming up-and-coming photographers capturing the world around them through a unique lens.
British photographer Henry Rich first fell in love with the notion of capturing moments when he’d borrow his sister’s camera and take it to school. Now, he’s established himself with an expressive and experimental approach, toying with methods of collage and double exposure and presenting images in diptychs and triptychs. Most fascinated by transient moments and the intricacies of seemingly inanimate objects, Rich’s work encourages the viewer to bring their own meaning to each composition.
