About Dr. Philip Harris

Dr. Philip Harris is programme leader for BA (Hons) Photography at the University of Derby. For over 60 years, the University of Derby has been teaching photography and developing the practices of image makers and critical thinkers. Harris was awarded a PhD by Birmingham City University, 2012, for his thesis Photographing Landscape: A Theory of the Experience of Making, where he developed a methodology drawing upon Martin Heidegger’s theories of technology and art to theorise the experiences of making within the genre and landscape and the representation of environment. His current practice and research explores themes of environment, identity and politics via the (mis)use of analogue cinematic media. Harris was a co-organiser of the FORMAT19 Photography Festival Conference held at the University of Derby in March 2019.
