Allison Hess
Photographer

Originally from a small town west of Houston, Texas, my interest in photography stems from my grandfather, who kept a detailed scrapbook, containing photographs of his entire life. This is what sparked my interest in that a person’s life was able to told as a story through photos, rather than words.

I became interested in photojournalism while attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I strive to produce photographs that challenge an individual’s perceptions of situations or topics. Through stories that I have produced, I hope that people find what they might have in common with others, rather than what might set us apart.

  • Atiéna R. Kilfa: Special Effect

Shot in black and white, the film eerily evokes a timelessness of the figure by bringing it in resonance with pictorial genres reminiscent of various eras from German Expressionist cinema to the golden age of Hollywood film noir, fast forward to its 4K quality of today.

  • Rencontres d’Arles 2024
    Beneath The Surface
    Jul 1 – Sep 29, 2024
    Arles, France
    Tremors and turmoil, spirits, traces, parallel readings and rereadings all constitute new perspectives underlying the 2024 edition of the Rencontres d’Arles. Photographers, artists and curators reveal their visions and stories, not least that of our humanity, by turns thwarted, in endless redefinition, resilient, but also visionary. Whether on the margins or established at the center, the narratives lead to divergent, multiple paths, all emanating from the faults in a porous surface: they intertwine, superimpose and overlap.

  • How Not to Be Seen
    May 10 – Sep 8, 2024
    Remai Modern
    Saskatoon, Canada
    We may not always be aware of it, but we live in an era of continuous scrutiny. Modern technology captures, distributes, and analyzes images and data at ever-increasing rates. We are all subjects of tracking, not only by cameras employed purportedly as a deterrent for crime but also by digital tools used by corporations and governments alike to monitor and evaluate our actions, needs, and desires.

    Deadline Aug 3, 2024
    Prisma Art Prize
    International
    Prisma Art Prize is an art contest born to promote emerging painters and visual artists. As our name and logo suggests, we want to be a prism that refracts all the possible outcomes of the painting process.
