EADIE LIFESTYLE X ASTRID HARRISSON



The powerful rhythm of Astrid Harrisson's work mimics an understanding for the relevance of the stories in today's society and through the combined use of digital photography and graphic illustration, Astrid creates photographic prints that are, more often than not, stylised, contemporary pieces of art. Astrid is a photographer who has been captivated by the story of the horse and has sought to explore the threads of history by meeting and documenting some of the world's rarest and most important breeds.

 "My portraits are largely dynamic, realistic representations of animals – in particular, horses. I work intimately, taking the time to build a rapport with my subjects. In the wild this is less possible, but understanding that the animals I am photographing will be aware of my presence and fully assertive is in itself of relevance and a relationship that defines the final portrait I create. A portrait is, by definition, a collaboration between subject and artist and the resulting piece is a representation of sentience, of beauty, of power, of history. I want to give animals the opportunity to share their stories; to connect unknowingly with global audiences where the language of images provides no barrier and thus help to conserve and preserve the sentient souls of the animal kingdom.”

When it came time to shoot our latest collection “Grace”, Astrid's prints were the ideal pieces to decorate the walls. They represent all the qualities this new collection embodies - beauty, appreciation, freedom, humanity, confidence, curiosity and passion. Each of the four prints has harmoniously blended with our collection to create a sense of calm and elegance.

Northern India at dawn brings chilly mornings and incredible hues. The mystical Marwari horse being trained at dawn is magical, spirited and will fill your heart with freedom and your soul with love.

On the actual day of this shoot, a pre-dawn start was essential. If you have ever visited North West India, you may have experienced the wonders of the morning light. Fresh, cold mornings and warm hot days of the desert can bring a tremendous morning mist and a vast palette of purple and pink hues. Having warmed ourselves with freshly brewed masala chai, we ventured out onto the farm to watch the horses being worked. This breed is light-footed, agile and spirited and, for me, this image of a Marwari horse circling and kicking up dust encapsulates both physical and spiritual attributes of this most glorious breed.

This distinguished profile of an Appaloosa horse highlights the curvaceous accents of a young colt, his coat flecked with spots and quirky markings, bringing any interiors to life with its animalistic qualities and simple lines.

The enchanting and mystical Camargue horses live in an area of marshland in the South of France, close to infamous Arles. Early on this misty morning, the first challenge of finding the horses was overcome fairly imminently. Adrenaline feeding the moment, a quiet excitement in the air undoubtedly mirroring in the horses’ own spiritedness.

A true sense of soul of the somewhat hostile mosquito-ridden expanse enveloped the cobweb-ridden heather with low-lying mist. The image is from a small series that captures the horses’ flighty spirits as Astrid's presence blended into the scene and true herd behaviour came into play.

Since Astrid's photographic career began in 2005 when working on a shipwreck salvage in Mozambique, Astrid has worked with Nikon gear. All her images were shot with Nikon cameras and lenses, including D4s, D700 and D800 bodies with 24-70mm f2.8, 70-200mm f2.8 and 105mm f2.8 Macro lenses.

Astrid uses a variety of different print solutions and carefully selects the finest paper and print type combination to suit each image. All materials are of professional, archival quality and Astrid works closely with suppliers in the UK and USA to produce her work to utmost standards.

Pigment ink prints are produced on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, German Etching or Canson Baryta papers. Some prints are produced as silver based digital C-type prints. These are real photographic prints, created on light sensitive paper using a finely balanced red, green and blue light source. This creates an analogue style print from a digital file with unparalleled tones.

Astrid releases her work in small editions which are produced to order, usually in two sizes. These editions are hand-signed and dated on the front by Astrid and hand-signed, dated and numbered on a label on verso.
