Please read below the description from his last London Exhibition.
“Derek is inspired by the colours and beauty of nature. In his flower photography considerable time and attention is paid to the lighting of his subjects which are shot against a black background. Close examination reveals an extraordinary amount of detail and subtlety of texture and colour. The impact is such that the viewer feels as though the flower, although a familiar object, is being seen for the first time. His work is revelatory in the true sense, for his images are larger than life-size and compel us to look more closely
…. And we are captivated by what is revealed
Mostly we look without seeing but with Harris’s work this is no longer possible”.
