Henry Hargreaves was born and raised in Christchurch, New Zealand. After receiving a degree in film and American Studies from the University of Canterbury, he set off for South East Asia where a chance meeting with a photographer in Bangkok launched an unlikely and explosive life chapter. It wasn’t long before he recognized his own passion for photography. Extensive travel and full immersion in the fashion industry fueled this desire and 3 years and 50 countries later, Henry relocated to New York City. Looking to break from the nomadic life of modeling and seeking to cultivate his own artistic and entrepreneurial ambitions, he set up shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He has since established himself as a full time photographer known for fun, creative, provocative and memorable images. He has created a wide spectrum of work. What unites his work is his restless and curious mind, a fascination with the unusual or quirky, and a desire to see how photography can illuminate the world and spark conversation.
