Stephanie Hogen

Hogen, Stephanie

Stephanie Vos Hogen was born into a military family that moved frequently across western america And Europe. Always adjusting to foreign people and places cultivated her inherent curiosity in creating new connection and accentuated her sensitivity to others. A nude model for other artist in her early 20's, Hogen soon found herself on the other side of the lens, beginning a 30-year journey into the intricacies of black-and-white figure studies. Her mature work reveals a confident eye working in settings both natural and composed, some hand-tinted to stunning effect. Her sensuous platinum prints on watercolor paper seem struck from another time yet are infused with an unmistakably modern sensibility. Like her father before her, Hogen has found in photography a form of communion with the world that reveals spirit in the castaway moments of the everyday.
