Henry Hargreaves graduated from UC in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts. He wasn’t sure what career he wanted to pursue, so he went travelling to see more of the world.

Whilst in South-East Asia, Henry ended up modelling, by chance, and found that he envied those on the other side of the camera. Through his modelling he travelled to New York for fashion week and it’s been his home ever since.

Henry has found success with his playful and thought provoking work, which is mainly food photography. Watch the video to see some of his work – deep fried iPhone anyone?

His work has featured in The New York Times and The Guardian, which is a pretty big deal.
