Harald’s key interests lie in memory, Eros, intimacy, architecture and the creation of personal topographies through the mediums of film and photography. Working almost exclusively with celluloid, whether in moving or still images, Harald firmly believes in the power of analog images.
His films have been shown in many international film festivals such as the Edinburgh International Film Festival or the London Short Film Festival and have won several prizes. His photography was recently exhibited at the Copenhagen Photo Festival. Harald recently created a music video for Carly Blackmann’s new album that will launch in the fall. He also recently shot the album cover of London based Love Supræme.
“Léthé is also part-homage to the 60’s French New Wave, with elliptical dialogue familiar with Last Year at Marienbad and a colour scheme reminiscent of mid-60’s Jean-Luc Godard.” Dave Cave, British Film Institute.

Artist Gabriel Jones’ work evolves around such themes as pseudonyms, apatriotism, science, geography, archaeology, art performances and time.
“Gabriel Jones’ photography creates an emphasis on emptiness and absence. His images hosts color as an intrinsic element for its representation of the real. Coming from an improbable road-movie, these urbanscapes register within the realms of expectation, open to all possibilities. The underlined zone -literally, the suburbs- becomes a theatrical landscape where areas evolve within their reduced immensities.” Claire Taillandier
His photographic work has been commissioned by The New York Times Magazine, M Le Monde Magazine and he collaborated with Arcade Fire to photograph The Suburbs’ eight album covers (Grammy Award for Best Album Packaging, 2012). His next photographic book “Things we do not see” will be published worldwide by RVB-BOOKS in January 2018. Jones is represented in Germany by Galerie Bugdahn und Kaimer (Dusseldorf).
