Hanly Banks takes us on a personal, beautiful tour of America

Hanly Banks takes us on a personal, beautiful tour of America | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

Woo! Hanly Banks has put all her photos online! If you don’t know Hanly’s work, she’s the girl who managed to single-handedly track down mysterious dreamboat Bill Callahan and make a tour film about him, which subsequently got screened worldwide (as featured in our Printed Pages Spring issue). Her style is laidback, polite and slow, making for some emotional and thoughtful filmmaking. Her collection of snaps are no different. Taken casually with not even a tiny hint of pretension, this is a wonderful collection of images that records the travelling Hanly has done in the past few years, making films, driving and making friends with members of the general public all over America.
