MISHKA HENNER
[b. 1976] Belgian artist living and working in Manchester, England
My motivation isn't to make you feel or to care - it's to make you think. - Mishka Henner

I no longer really trusted the camera in my hands. I don't think subjects trusted it. It seemed to get in the way of an interaction, an encounter, and change it dramatically. I would be performing and the person in front of it would be performing. It was all a performance. That made the idea of objective truth redundant, so that all that was left was a kind of stylistic exercise that could be applied to any subject: a tow-bar factory, a war in Syria. I started to really distrust that. The world is so much richer than my stylistic cloaking of it. - Mishka Henner

A social reality has been captured by a remote device taking billions of pictures no one else ever looked at or collected in this way before. - Mishka Henner - From the book: Behind the Camera: Creative Techniques of 100 Great Photographers. by Paul Lowe
