A self-taught filmmaker and photographer, Glashier is based between Berlin and London, working exclusively on film, capturing narrative images and producing both documentaries and music videos for artists such as Juno Temple, Harry Shearer, Bonobo, Maximo Park and Ghostpoet. Having started out as the official photographer for the Mercury Music Prize, Glashier’s passion for analogue has accrued international acclaim, producing pieces for renowned brands such as American Apparel, and featuring on a week-long takeover on The Photographers’ Gallery’s Instagram. Each image is instilled with a deep sense of intimacy – from self-referential moments to the silent company of others in a car lay-by. The following series captures the raw energy of youth with a soft palette. Meanwhile, rocky waters, foggy streets and cloudy skies pervade the settings, offering spaces for self-reflection. http://glashier.co.
