Upon graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2010 with a degree in Fine Arts, self-taught photographer Harley Weir has flowered into a much-respected young pioneer. With an intimate take on composition and a meticulous eye for detail, the artist has worked for progressive titles such as Dazed and POP, and shot campaigns for fashion brands including Jacquemus and Calvin Klein. Naturally, Foam Amsterdam endeavored to shine a spotlight on Weir’s work, and today officially opens her first solo exhibition.

In a pursuit to find beauty in the mundane, the exhibit showcases a select group of Weir’s analogue images, boasting a soft and physical aesthetic that’s very contemporary, but also reminiscent of Pre-Raphaelite paintings. Named Boundaries, Weir allows ambiguity to open up interpretation, but the overall theme is ultimately embedded in all of her endeavors. Displayed in an intimate setting—expect a collage-like presentation of personal photos—you can stroll through the devoted space and get up close with the (in)famous work.
