In our second post introducing the photographers behind some of the original images featured in CUT TO [compilation], we introduce Hannah Stockem, whose work features twice in the magazine.
"Blur" (above) is a fitting accompaniment to Bianca Garner's article on PROMETHEUS, paratexts and "the space beyond the screen" that was originally published in CUT TO [space]. "Cloudy" (below) stunningly illustrates Alice Stansfield's article on WALL-E and animating environmental apocalypse that was originally published in CUT TO [waste].
Tell us a little bit about yourself
I'm a third year photography student at Solent and will be finishing my degree soon. In my work I often think about abstraction, environmental issues and materiality.
What is your approach to photography?
I often combine physical and digital practices and make miniature paper models which I then photograph. I collect old film cameras and I'm very interested in the materiality of objects and photographs.
Tell us about your photography in CUT TO [compilation]
"Blur" represents mystery and an appreciation of abstraction and formality while "Cloudy" deals with the implications of globalisation and waste.
