Rob Hann "Diesel Fried Chicken"
British photographer Rob Hann began his career in 1993 shooting portraits for magazines and record companies. Today he is based in New York and acclaimed for his landscape photography portraying the American west. Drawn by the open spaces, Hann took his first solo road trip with a camera in 2001 and since then “The Great American Road Trip” has been his main subject. His images represent the landscape’s boundless grandeur while life on a human scale intervenes with its humorous mundanity and quirks. Funny road signs, mysterious objects and installations located in the middle of nowhere. Hann is a master at capturing this in stunning, colourful compositions.
Hann’s work is found in the permanent collection of London’s National Portrait Gallery. He has worked for established magazines and newspapers such as Times Magazine, Monocle and The Telegraph, just as his work is included in the book Landmark: The Fields of Photography published by Thames & Hudson in 2014. Hann’s first book, Diesel Fried Chicken, was published by The Artist Edition in 2018.
About the Work: The mythology of the American road first started to take hold of my imagination in the mid 1970s through reading books, listening to records and watching movies.
