Reeve Hart is a photographer based in the South of England, currently studying MFA Photography at University for the Creative Arts, graduating in 2024.
Hart is concerned with the relationship between humanity and nature, specifically the mistreatment of animals in food production. He uses photography to address questions of immorality, in an aim to elicit feelings of empathy for non-human animals. Influenced by his love of animals which started from a young age, Hart creates often uncomfortable photographs to provoke a reaction, critiquing normalised anthropocentric attitudes that have led to an immoral dominion over the sentient individuals with which we coexist.
In his latest work – 75,000,000,000 - Hart utilises a combination of digital and analogue medium format photography, shot on location and in the studio, to highlight the cruelty of factory farming and the disconnect between the food we eat and its origin; intending to promote a critical posthumanist ideology that encourages an equal and ethical affinity between humans and animals.
