H.D. Hasselbarth is an award-winning fine art photographer who resides in Florida and New Hampshire. She is listed in Who’s Who in Visual Arts 2011-2012; and her works are displayed in galleries in Florida, California, Illinois and New York.
Hasselbarth was born in Richmond, Virginia and moved to Florida during her college years. After studying photography in the early 1980's, she worked in the traditional method of film. During the late nineties, Hasselbarth moved away from the world of film photography and began to experiment in the less familiar, but more potent, realm of digital technology.
All signed originals are printed by hand and calibrated for an Epson printer. The papers and inks that Hasselbarth uses are of archival quality. These archival quality photographs are less fugitive than any other photographic materials to date.
In her work, Hasselbarth assumes a neutral and fixed gaze. She creates her art from commonplace subjects: a lone figure on the beach, an empty chair, a red shirt, the village hotel. Like the life she studies, her art illustrates the extremes from solemnly visceral to enchantingly charming.
Favoring landscapes, Hasselbarth's photographs bears witness to unfolding stories, waiting for a viewer to see and interpret the meanings.
