Artist: JOHN HALL

THE PHOTOGRAPH

Resulting from the meeting, in Madrid still republican, of a Welsh father
and a Catalan mother, John Hall will study art in France
veterinarian and political science. Naturally curious, he
will cover the hot spots of the news of the '60s and '70s, he
will reside in Cuba, Latin America, Arab countries and the area
Sahelian before settling in the United States and retiring
in the south of France.
Responsible for promoting rural development in third countries
world by different international organizations, he will discover the
amazing power of photography as a tool for mobilization and
mediation of rural communities, and his camera will accompany him to
all stages of his professional life.
In the '60s and '70s, the wind of revolt that blew from all
shares rather encouraged the denunciation of poverty and the glorification of
attempts to break free. That's why the photos of this
period are centered on both men and women. From
eighties, however, a certain political disenchantment
associated with the rise of ecological awareness explain without
doubts the attention paid to nature: rocks, vegetation,
luminous abstractions, which naturally led him to images
that he loves today.
