  • About

    Fiona Hall's diversified practice includes installation, mixed media and photography. She trained as both a painter and photographer in Sydney, London and Rochester, New York, before returning to Australia to work professionally and teach in the early 1980s. Her early photographs present intriguing and seductive images of the world, unexpected glimpses of life and places. Documentary becomes truly a process of revealing what we might otherwise miss. Hall's work also plays with light, and its ability to both reveal and cloak. In 'Barcelona, Spain, May 1976', the shadows appear like smoke, seductively wisping their way across the wall.
