Hannah Whitaker is an artist and Triple Canopy contributing editor based in New York.
Interested in structural limitations, she makes photographs by layering exposures onto 4×5 film through hand-cut paper screens. This accumulation of coded imagery allows the photographs to participate in various systems (linguistic, numerical, musical, and digital) and to form networks through shared vocabularies of signs. She holds a BA from Yale University and an MFA from the ICP/Bard College. Selected exhibitions include those at M+B, Los Angeles, Thierry Goldberg, New York; Galerie Xippas, Paris; Cincinnati Art Museum, Ohio; George Lawson Gallery, San Francisco; Tokyo Institute of Photography; Cherry and Martin, Los Angeles; and Rencontres d'Arles in France, where she was nominated for the Discovery Prize. Her work was recently selected for inclusion in the prestigious photography exhibition Foam Talent (2014) (traveling, Amsterdam, Paris and Dubai). She co-edited issue 45 of Blind Spot magazine and co-curated its accompanying show, The Crystal Chain, at Invisible Exports in New York. Selected press includes Frieze, Modern Painters, Los Angeles Times, Hotshoe, Libération, and Art Review, artpress, IMA, among others. Peer to Peer, Whitaker's first monograph, was published by Mörel Books.
