Mishka Henner is a key practitioner among the generation of artists redefining the role of photography in the internet age. He views the capturing of images by an endless array of automated and manual cameras as a unified representation of the world with infinite detail, accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Much of his work navigates through this vast digital terrain to focus on key subjects of cultural and geo-political interest. His process often involves extensive documentary research combined with the meticulous construction of imagery from materials sourced online.

 

Born in 1976 in Brussels, Belgium, Henner moved to the UK in 1984. He holds a Masters degree from Goldsmiths College in London and in 2013, was awarded the Infinity Award for Art by the International Center of Photography. He was shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize in the same year and in 2014, was on the shortlist for the Prix Pictet for his large-scale works focusing on landscapes carved by the beef and oil industries of America. Henner was showcased as part of the group show New Photography at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 2015. A major solo show, Counter Intelligence at Orebro Konsthall, Sweden featured works across several series in the spring of 2017.
