Hannah Campbell is an emerging artist based in Vancouver - Coast Salish Territories. Hannah completed her B.F.A. at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and has exhibited work throughout Vancouver. Her work has gone on to win multiple awards including the Canon Photography Award and the Gordon Smith Top Visual Artist award. Hannah uses art as a medium to share stories and create collective and shared experiences between the artist and the viewer. Much of her recent work is an exploration of how imagery, storytelling and memories are connected and works in these themes through social engagement with the public.
These photographs are part of a larger series titled Arctic Fiction. This series was produced during an artist residency in Svalbard, Norway in the Arctic Circle. The photograph series documents this dynamic landscape of the Arctic, one that is quickly and forever changing due to climate change. Part of the project was documenting a place that would never be seen the same for future generations, documenting a changing history. The title Arctic Fiction reflects how many people treat the natural environment as far away almost fictional places that they don’t need to protect or look after. Although it is what we utterly depend on for our own survival we often feel detached from our environmental surroundings. Her photos of the mountainous archipelago and the abandoned Soviet mining camps are striking for their composition, subject matter, and solitude. Still only in her 20s, Hannah Campbell is one to watch.
