HANA HALEY l A GIRL'S WORLD
IF YOU WERE TO TAKE YOUR LAST PHOTOGRAPH EVER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I would take a photo of me kissing someone I love on the cheek, in a place that I love the most, and it would be at sunset.
For some, it is very different the connection with a digital camera than with a film camera. Hana Haley is one of those rare young artists that experiments with film photography and reflects her love for it through her work.
She is from Portland, Oregon but she also thinks she is from San Francisco, California. Her style and soul seems to come from scenes of a retro movie inside the dreamy city. Inspired by love and sadness she creates a girl's dream world. With nostalgic and beautiful portraits of all kind of girls, Hana shows the world that beauty is everywhere, no matter the type of hair, color, size or skin.
At the age of 25 she is currently living in New York City, focussing on directing films and photography.
WHAT SCARES YOU THE MOST?
Gorillas (I'm serious), guns and greed!
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST STRENGTH TO MAKE ART?
I'm very in touch with my feelings and it is easy to express myself.
WHAT IS ART?
Art is a feeling transposed.
