STEVEN HARWICK IS AN ARTIST LIVING IN BROOKLYN, NY. HIS WORK IS PRIMARILY DONE THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY; HOWEVER, HE ALSO WORKS IN VIDEO, INSTALLATION, AND COLLAGE. THE MAIN FOCUS OF HIS PRACTICE IS HIS SELF-PUBLISHED ZINE, BOUND LEATHER, WHICH WAS STARTED AS A MEANS OF EXPLORING AND DOCUMENTING THE CONTEMPORARY LEATHER AND BDSM COMMUNITIES THROUGH A PHOTOGRAPHIC LENS, LEANING ON CULTURAL HISTORY AND TRADITIONAL FETISH IMAGERY WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY SUBVERTING THOSE STANDARDS BY SHOWCASING AN ARRAY OF PEOPLE MORE INHERENTLY INCLUSIVE THAN THE LONG-ESTABLISHED CANON. EVEN WORK FALLING OUTSIDE OF THIS PROJECT STILL AIMS TO HIGHLIGHT IDENTITY, SUBVERSIONS, AND PERVERSIONS.
