About

-All work created by Harry Peckover unless stated otherwise-

Hello and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Harry Peckover and I am a photographer and visual artist.

For me, one of the greatest things about photography is how it trains you to notice and appreciate the beauty in everyday moments. Being able to reframe otherwise mundane subjects and interrogate them visually is an incredibly satisfying process. Both in shooting philosophy and finished product, I hope that my work conveys this outlook.

Growing up, I always enjoyed creating, whether it was in the form of dreaming up characters, worlds or simply toying with ideas. Though I did (and still do) enjoy drawing, I have a joint condition which makes most activity, including using a pen, painful. This setback also prevented me from taking up a musical instrument. Having no outlet for my imagination or activity to burn off steam was difficult. Fortunately, one day I discovered photography and was instantly ensnared in capturing what I saw around me. In many ways, I haven't changed much since then. Photography combined my passions for visual art and technical understanding but most importantly of all, it wasn't painful. Finally, I had a way of expressing myself. I am grateful I was able to discover and harness this passion and use it to create what you see here on my website. I hope you enjoy viewing my work just as much as I enjoyed creating it!
