Hall has been a professional photographer for over twenty five years.
He has had numerous solo exhibitions he has shown his work in
North America and Europe and has extensive experience as a cinematographer
and as a stills photographer in Newfoundlands burgeoning film
industry. His experimental film ROOF TOPS remains an extraordinary and
haunting perception of the city of St. Johns. In 1998, The Newfoundland
and Labrador Arts Council Commissioned him to document the YEAR OF THE
ARTS and the resulting series of photographs captured the spontaneity,
the intensity, the collaboration amongst artists during the making and
showing of art.
With an omnipresent eye and the ability to become virtually invisible
Hall presents eerie mist-shrouded landscapes and quietly dramatic portraits
which allow the subject matter to remain inherently mysterious. He shoots
the commonplace, the unheeded, the overlooked, and in doing so imbues
his subjects with a nobility and significance not immediately apparent
to the naked eye. He apprehends a childs face in the crowd and
catches the moment as the child apprehends the lens and is delighted.
Hall is presently working on a show of experimental digital panoramic
images which will be part of an exhibition in the spring of 2002.
