Born 1963 in Norfolk, U.K.

 

Harry Cory Wright is an artist whose work explores our fundamental attraction to place, and the very physical process of being in landscape.  His photographs range from the intimate nature of his father's bench beside a stream (Alders) to the stark grandeur of the rock face on the island of Staffa (Dark Cliff). Often it is the very physicality of a place to which Cory Wright is drawn; a feeling for the scale of things, their mass and volume. The vivid and immaculate nature of these large format works convey a real sense of 'being there'. These photographs are first hand accounts of landscapes to which we are all witness.
