UPA Visiting Artist

Hadley Manings

I have been making images since I was a teenager.  I have traveled extensively and have always been in love with the search and slowly working the proposed scene. From my days of black and white film, I was always trying alternate processes in the darkroom to adjust the image to more closely represent what I was actually seeing. After switching to digital I found it difficult to manipulate images in order portray my inner vision. Three years ago on a workshop, I discovered and fell in love with high contrast black and white infrared photography. It truly represents my inner vision. I feel I have come full circle. This medium has given me back a childlike passion for expression.
