photographer and graphic designer
Hi! I’m Harrison.
I’m a Graphic Designer, Photographer, and a lifelong distance runner.
I graduated from Purchase College in 2020 with a BFA in Graphic Design
and a minor in Art History. I’ve been taking photos for 8-9 years, and I
discovered artistic expression through exploring architecture and abstracting
found textures and patterns. While other things didn’t seem to click for me
in high school, composing a photograph did, and studying Graphic Design
in College opened my eyes to a whole other medium and ways to express
myself. Putting my thoughts into words or on paper doesn’t always
communicate what I’m thinking, and that to me is where my artistic
satisfaction comes from. I constantly see images in my head and creating
something is the only thing that satisfies this curiosity. This is where I get
my motivation to make work and how I stay in tune with my emotions.
Mental health for me goes hand in hand with art and expression. I am
constantly looking at any and all kinds of work for new inspiration,
whether it be a motion piece or a brand on the side of a truck I saw while
driving. I think the biggest thing that school taught me is that design is
everywhere, and anything can be designed. I knew I was a slightly different
person when I was noticing levels of green or magenta saturation on everyday
print or looking at ads and thinking how I would have designed it myself.
