A-Level Photography students study Harry J Bartlett’s GLITCH portraits

I was pleasantly surprised to find that my friend spotted a video on YouTube where an A-Level photography class had used my “GLITCH” editorial as an artist of reference for a unit of work based on distortion.
George Robinson-White, teacher of Art & Photography at TAHS introduced the students to my work and me as a contemporary artist, looking at my unique take on photographic portraiture.
The students analysed my work and were asked to create their own interpretation of my glitch portraits as well as using me as a contemporary artist reference for their A-Level essays.
I’m flattered to know that my work is being shown to a new generation of potential photographers and artists. I didn’t expect my glitch series to be something students would study as part of an A-Level project or even to be referring to me as an artist.

For my latest photo shoot, I have been experimenting with Glitch Art, a trend that I have become quite fond of and have spent a lot of time trying to figure out and have fun with. A glitch is an error that can occur within technology such as a screen error, datamoshing or an unreadable file. Overall, a glitch can be something very frustrating  (and to most quite hideous) but is something I have grown to find quite beautiful. By looking at errors in a differently light, I have created a fashion editorial using technological errors and using them to enhance a look within the photo shoot.

a cheeky preview of today’s editorial

I thought I should post a little teaser of what I have been up to today.
I have been shooting for a healthy 6 hours shooting my editorial and piecing together a small fashion film to go alongside.
Nothing has been edited yet and the images have been snapped from my phone off my laptop screen.
I have shot and styled the images myself with a little help from my friends.
