David Hillard

DAVID HILLIARD creates multi-paneled color photographs, often based on his life or the lives of people around him. His panoramas allow the artist to direct the viewer’s gaze across the image surface letting narrative and time unfold. David received his BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1992 and his MFA from Yale University in 1994. He worked for many years as an assistant professor at Yale University where he also directed the undergraduate photo department. Additionally he taught at Harvard University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. He’s currently an assistant professor in Boston at the Massachusetts College of Art. Hilliard exhibits his photographs both nationally and internationally and has won numerous awards including a Fulbright Fellowship and a Guggenheim Fellowship. The Yancey Richardson Gallery in NY, Bernard Toale Gallery in Boston, Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta, Mark Moore Gallery in Santa Monica, and LA Galerie in Frankfurt represent his work. In 2005 a collection of his photographs was published in a monograph by Aperture. He is currently the artist-in-residence at the Cranbrook Art Academy. I like also how David Hillard focuses on capturing his life. I like that the images he captures are very intimate with others but what I like the most is how he uses seperate frames of the same place to show the final piece of the person who is being captured. I feel the braking up of the images makes the photograph look more intermate. When looking in to each frame it ends with a really unique story of the person he is capturing, it shows a very good visual look of what the place is also like around these different people.
