@ Harris, Marvel


Presentation by Mack:

" Marvel describes the journey of Marvel Harris' personal battles with mental illness, self-love, acceptance, and gender identity, all told through a searing collection of self-portraits spanning the course of five years.

These photographs present a new-found visual language; a tool with which Marvel was able to express those emotions that, on account of his autism, he previously struggled to make sense of. The process of making these portraits allowed him to connect to the world around him at the time he needed it most.

Winner of the MACK First Book Award 2021, Marvel is an important new voice which contributes to an increased awareness of the issues surrounding gender identity and mental health. In doing so, this deeply personal book demands a more tolerant attitude from society towards transgender people and those who don't identify as entirely male or female."

Harris, Marvel

Marvel Harris is a Dutch photographer. The artist's website states : « Marvel's photographic work revolves around his experiences as an autistic, non-binary transgender artist who has struggled with mental health problems for many years. While suffering from an eating disorder and depression, Marvel started capturing himself with a camera to manage emotions he could not adequately put into words. In the beginning, this most often was when he experienced feelings such as anxiety and loneliness or felt desperate about the future. Looking at his work from a distance, Marvel realized how photography helps him understand his own complex identity. The resulting images are part of Marvel's ongoing long-term project entitled "Inner Journey" and they hit you with a raw honesty — the subject bare and unadorned, elegantly captured in monochromatic light. » Marvel Harris self-published his first photobook "Marvel" in 2020. This project went on to receive the English publisher Mack's "First Book Award" and was re-published by Mack in 2021. © Self-portrait taken from the artist's website
