Jill Beth Hannes graduated from The Academy of Art University in 2010 with a BFA in photography. She started taking photographs in elementary school when she was given a disposable camera for a class project. She’s been obsessed with creating images ever since. Her work is cinematic, dream-like and most images stem from a personal experience. She was recently shortlisted for the Next Photographer Award by D&AD. Her work has been published in publications around the world including GUP, VICE, The Wild Magazine, Schön, The Photographic Journal and Contributor. She lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
The work of Jill Beth Hannes was selected by Todd Hido for the first FotoFilmic//SOLO Exhibition Award. The exhibition opened on October 14, 2017 at the PULP gallery on Bowen Island/Vancouver.
