5881501Gillian Hyland: A Photographic Retrospective
DateFriday 27th September 2019 to Saturday 21st December 2019
DescriptionGillian Hyland creates supernatural staged images, presented as film stills or dramatic moments. Her narrative photographs are psychologically evocative - at once sublimely theatrical yet poignant. Frozen in time, solitary and vulnerable moments are presented in glorious technicolour and on timeless sets. Hyland describes herself as an image maker and storyteller. Originally from Ireland, now living in Clapton, east London her career began in publishing, where she worked as a fashion stylist and features writer for a number of well-known national magazines. This led to a move into the television industry, and later into the film industry, where she worked as stylist, set designer and art director. Since 2007, Hyland has created a portfolio that encompasses imagery for fashion shoots, commercials and advertising campaigns. This diverse background has nurtured her passion for making images, now evolved into her own highly distinctive photographic style. "It's not about creating a pretty picture, for me it's the intention that lies beneath it that is truly worthwhile. I'm drawn to the thinking mind behind the face, the subject's eyes holding a story in their gaze, that is what I aim to capture through my photographs." Gillian Hyland
