Ian Addison Hall
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Prospect Heights



ARTIST STATEMENT: “I will tell you the one thing I really believe out of all the things there are to believe… All people are insane… They will do anything at any time, and God help anybody who looks for reasons.” - Kurt Vonnegut in Mother Night No matter how exhausting it can be, we all look for reasons. While at times it feels like we are all so different, focusing on communal thoughts and feelings that we share will conjure an inherent understanding we have of one another. Using photography and found imagery, my work brings to light common underlying values that we all share. Each series focuses on different aspects of global intellectual and emotional knowledge, and attempts to make them accessible in new ways. I'm Ian Addison Hall and I was born and raised in West Virginia. Now I live in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn with my girlfriend Kellyn and our dog Tater. Working from my experiences growing up in rural West Virginia and now living in New York City, I hope to promote a heightened sense of belonging by communicating collective thoughts, feelings and experiences that we can all relate to.

Recent Press

"Ian Addison Hall’s photographic collages, on the other hand, create a haunting dream world. Hall has arranged 35mm cut-outs against drab beige backgrounds, nailing the essence of each location in a minimum of images, like a photographic haiku. There are no walls, only angles and perspective — windows and doorways gaping into nowhere." - Huffington Post
