Brooklyn-based Yannique Hall explores intimacy, the interior, and the private through family, home, and relationships. Hall describes her work as a constant search for the familiar—a search for place. The series “Growing Pains” belongs to a growing narrative on the interrelationships between the subjects, who are all personally connected to Hall, and the camera. A 2011 graduate of Cooper Union, the 2017 Harpo Grant for Visual Artists is Hall’s first major grant for her photographic body of work.
