Hannah Carroll is a visual artist and film photographer currently based in Duncan, British Columbia. Born in the UK, Hannah spent a lot of her early childhood travelling far and wide with her family, before returning to the UK for her higher education. Summers were spent travelling across Europe and Africa; always with a camera in one hand and a notepad in the other. The desire and willingness to take up new and exciting opportunities when they are offered to her is the foundation of her creative practice. Hannah currently works from home, drawing shape on shape in small sketchbooks and loading film into her cameras.
Shooting with film allows for a concise, slowed down approach to exploring architectural shapes, natural landscapes and new horizons. Hannah works by pairing back a scene, extracting the ‘busyness’ around her and focusing on the minimal, often un-missed features of the location. Nothing compares to working with black and white film stock. The monochrome photographs balance out her minimal, yet colourful and structured approach within her visual practice.
Hannah’s visual practice explores the juxtaposition, interaction and playfulness of colour, shape and line. Linear forms and colour relationships produce a clarity that allows Hannah to work with a logical yet personal system of production. Her on going body of work is constantly evolving, but aims to bring together a well considered fragment of colour and shape into any space.
