Carolin Becker and Simon Harrison are London-based artists who have worked together as BECKERHARRISON since 2007. Since then they have worked on developing their unusual symbiosis of photography and graffiti to extend the realm of photographic realism and to address certain social and political topics ranging from the homeless situation in the UK to education of girls in North Africa or religious conflict in India. Mixing Carolin’s photography with Simon’s unconventional graffiti work provides them with the opportunity to reinterpret the objects or scenes originally recorded and to add their own observations, reflecting their different perspectives and personalities in two distinct but complementary media. In their ‘Luminosity’ series, which was first exhibited at the AIM Biennale in Marrakech, Morocco in November 2009, BeckerHarrison developed more aesthetically focussed work photographing and then abstracting flowers using their paint-on-print process. Their Indian project, ‘What a Difference a Day Makes’ is based around bomb attacks by Muslim fundamentalists on 13th May, 2008 in Jaipur. The works are a retrospective view of the attacks and the religious conflict in India and shows how the lives of those photographed might have been influenced by the bombings. This project will be the subject of a show at the Lazarides Gallery in London opening 7th October, 2010.
