Description

Hannah Price is one of Magnum’s newest nominee members, welcomed into the agency in the summer of 2020. Born in 1986 and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado, Price’s work sets its sights on gender politics, race and social perception.

This 2013 photograph of the Brooklyn Bridge is from Price’s series Cursed By Night, a project exploring “a world of darkness to which black males are unfortunately tied”. An exploration of race and the way black men are often unfairly perceived, Price began the series after starting her MFA programme at Yale in 2012. The idea came to her after witnessing friends cross the road to avoid passing groups of black men, or refusing to travel to certain areas after dark. The photographs in Cursed By Night were taken over the course of a year, along America’s east coast, in Harlem, Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Hartford, Connecticut.
