Desert Island Pics: Mishka Henner

Mishka Henner has been described as a modern-day Duchamp for his appropriation of image-rich technologies including Google Earth, YouTube and Taaz.
Trained as a documentary photographer, Henner is seen as a trailblazer in a movement of photographers without cameras – having replaced shutter pressing with an interest in images, but not necessarily in making images.

He was nominated for the 2013 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize for No Man’s Land a survey of prostitution sites in Spain and Italy made using images found on Google Street View.

Loosely following the format of Radio 4′s Desert Island Discs and hosted by Stephen Bull, the event will see Henner reveal the photos he’d take with him to a desert island and discuss how they reflect his life and career.
