Harding is a street and portrait photographer based in London. He has been dabbling in photography for about five years now. In a feature by I Still Shoot Film, he revealed that he chose analogue photography as his medium “…primarily because unlike digital, it has character.” He also called film “magical.”

Earlier this year, Harding held a solo exhibition called “A Brighter Summer Day” at the SNAPPP Gallery in Taipei, Taiwan. Below, as well as the snapshot above, are some of the photos in this series:

Meanwhile, Harding’s also a filmmaker, having earned a degree in B.A. Film & Television with first class honors from the University of the Arts in London last year. Some of the films he had participated in have already been screened in a few prestigious festivals such as the Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Raindance Film Festival. In addition, he had also penned a few essays that have appeared in publications based not only in his motherland but also in the US and Taiwan.
