Fine art and commercial photographer Lissa Hahn divides her time between her Los Angeles studio and her Michigan summer home.
The California-born and Richmond, Virginia-raised Hahn began her photographic studies in high school where she learned traditional darkroom film processing and printing techniques. In 1995 she moved to California to pursue her studies of photography including a master workshop with renowned photographer Mark Edward Harris at the University of California, Los Angeles. Hahn supported her studies by working at a prestigious Hollywood photography lab where she came in direct contact with the film of Bruce Weber, the prints of Ellen Von Unwerth and many other photographic luminaries. She then headed to New York to work as a photographic assistant while shopping her portfolio around. Assignments and gallery exhibitions soon allowed Hahn to leave her invaluable assisting days behind.
In 2002 Hahn moved back to Los Angeles to open her own studio in the Brewery Artist Colony, a location she continues as to use as her creative base.
ABOUT FINE ART
Taking an innovative approach to photography. Hahn's images are created not with digital manipulation but with one click of the camera. Capturing a parallax perspective, detached from context, she expands spatial depth altering our visual sense of reality. Brilliant color spaces meet complex patterns and unfold a startlingly unique visual every time.
Hahn's Diplopia series of photographs are printed onto aluminum giving the images an added omnipresent holographic feeling.
