Hannah Rose Arnold’s photographs document the physical & social landscapes of New Zealand with gentle nostalgia. She treats her subjects with a sense of curiosity & grace, born of a transient nature.
Her practice is in exploring the relationship between people & their physical & psychological spaces – with themes of faith, trauma & redemption.
In 2018, Hannah graduated from Unitec Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Visual Arts majoring in Photography. In 2019, her image The Rib Bone travelled as a finalist in the Wallace Art Awards, & The Tensile Strength of a Heartstring toured New Zealand & Australia as a finalist in the ANZ Photobook Awards.
In 2021, she held a seminal exhibition, Tellurian, at Public Record, collaborating with potter Kristen Calder, & completed a residency at Driving Creek.
Originally from Tauranga, she now resides in the Kaipara region of New Zealand, teaching art, & keeps a studio in the Helensville railway station. – https://www.hannahrosearnold.com
