Henry/Bragg are artists Julie Henry and Debbie Bragg. They highlight subject matters that mean a great deal to them, such as the erosion of working class culture in the age of neoliberalism and global consumerism. They capture parts of this culture before it completely passes or borrow liberally from it's signifiers in their representations of it, using a mix of documentary photography, film and social engagement. They take the familiar and displace it in order to present it back to the viewer as a mirror to themselves.

Julie Henry has been living in Epsom for 17 years. Henry Bragg exhibit both nationally and internationally.

Henry Bragg's Film Installation 'The Surrey Hills' will be shown in the passageway behind Scope charity store on Epsom High Street.
The Surrey Hills, an audio-visual piece about a local landfill site, toured worldwide in 2012/3 as part of the exhibition Wild New Territories; from London to the Teck Gallery Vancouver and then onto Berlin. In March 2014, they were invited by Film and Video Umbrella to show and talk about their work at the Media Space in the Science Museum London, in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Only in England.’
