  4. Rob Hann: On Photography

    When did you become interested in photography?
    I’d always had a keen interest in visual art but in the 1980s I became a model and was surrounded by photographers and photography. I thought it would be something I would enjoy and might be good at so in 1986 I bought a camera and taught myself to shoot.

    Why photography?
    It’s easier than painting!

    What are you currently working on?
    I’ve been shooting a large body of work called I Dream a Highway since 2001. I take road trips, throughout the US but mainly in the western states, and see what I can find.

  6. Rob Hann

    At the age of three I climbed through a hole in the garden fence and headed off on my tricycle to visit my grandmother’s house a few miles away. It was my first road trip. Later in life I became a photographer and, in 2001, took my first solo road trip with my camera in the American west. I knew I’d found my subject.

    Since then I’ve moved to New York City and take to the American road whenever I get the chance. I’m not documenting the brutal creeping sprawl of corporate America. I’m seeking the magic that still exists in the spaces in between.
