American, b. 1980 in Washington, D.C., based in New York, NY.
At first glance, Hannah Whitaker’s photographs might seem like they are the product of cut and paste Photoshop collage, but she creates her images entirely in camera, favoring analogue experimentation to digital manipulation. In her new body of work, instead of deconstructing existing images, she mixes the conventions of photography and abstract art with silhouettes, geometric shapes and colors that play with the ideas of handmade and automated processes.
Hannah holds a MFA from The International Center of Photography and a BA from Yale University.
