Never standing still, the connecting thread of Oliver Hadlee Pearch’s photography is best understood as a kind of kinetic energy – one which allows memorable characters to come to life before his lens. “I like the idea of feeling the picture, feeling the energy of a person,” he describes, “There’s a humanness to it, and a connectedness.”
The studio pursues a design led and interdisciplinary approach to architecture through a portfolio that includes landscapes, buildings, installations and urban design.
