Harper Glantz works with still images, often layering them together into video compositions and photo essays. She works with music to tell her visual stories and has collaborated with sound artists such as James Murphy of LCD Sound System and her brother Jack Glantz, a Jazz musician and composer. She has presented her work “Making Eveningside” in the form of an installation at the museum of photography, Gallerie D’Italia Torino. This work is a multi screen immersive documentary on the production process of photographer Gregory Crewdson set to an original score by Stuart Bogie. This premiered for three months in Italy in 2022 and will be on view next at Les Rencontres d’Arles in 2023. She grew up in the small city of Pittsfield, MA with her three younger brothers who are the center of her world. She did not attend school after the age of 16 but instead pursued a career in lighting for films. Her time living in various American cities through this work has influenced her perception of societies and their norms and can often be an undercurrent in her work. She has apprenticed under numerous visual artists in her field including Gregory Crewdson, James Casebere and Isabel Magowen.
Harper makes her residency at Can Serrat during the month of June 2023.
