Debbie Harman             @debbieharman_izing


A Film and Photo Artist, interested in exploring experimental Documentary Arts and Poetic Film.  My practice is rooted in my personal experiences. I consider embodiment and human connection to the environment. I am drawn to questions of society, of localised issues that speak universally. I am intrigued by changing notions of community and the human condition in the 21st Century. Through use of Lens-based media and experimental sound I attempt to push the boundaries of documentary practice.
