about

Hannah Smith Allen is an Assistant Professor of Photography and Digital Media at Adelphi University. She holds an MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts and a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. She is the recipient of a 2007 Individual Photographer’s Fellowship from the Aaron Siskind Foundation, a 2010 Artist Fellowship in Photography from the New York Foundation for the Arts, a 2011 A.I.M. residency at the Bronx Museum of Art, and a 2012 A.I.R. Gallery fellowship. Her work has been exhibited nationwide, including venues such as the Phoenix Museum Art, The Bronx Museum of Art, and San Francisco Camerawork. Allen lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Artist Statement: For the past decade, I have created artwork about war. Whether I photograph a revolutionary war site or contemplate how photography mediates my understanding, as an American civilian, of recent events in Iraq and Afghanistan, I consider how images of war shape our psyche and our history. In my recent work, I have abandoned the battle site altogether and, instead, consider how images of violence and war permeate our fantasies and imaginations.
