Mishka Henner

United Kingdom

Born in 1976 in Belgium, Mishka Henner is a contemporary artist whose works and methods have helped redefine the scope of documentary photography in the Internet era. His varied practice navigates through the digital terrain to focus on key subjects of cultural and geo-political interest including US military empire, State censorship, mass industrial processes, and energy infrastructure.

He was included in the New Photography exhibition at MoMA New York in 2015 and has been involved in shows at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Turner Contemporary, Hasselblad Foundation, and the Pompidou Centre. His works are in international collections including the Arts Council England collection, Victoria & Albert Museum, New York Public Library, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. He received the Kleine Hans award in 2011 and is one of the youngest recipients of the International Centre for Photography’s Infinity Award for Art, awarded in 2013. He has also had eleven photography monographs published. He currently lives in the UK.
