Love Your Enemy: a photograph by Dana Hoey

Here’s a quick Q&A with photographer Dana Hoey, whose work is currently on exhibit at the Albany Institute of History & Art in the group show, “Summer Exposure: Photographic Works.”

Q: WHAT IS YOUR CONNECTION TO OR FAVORITE CHARACTERISTIC OF THE HUDSON VALLEY?

A: Incredible light! I am a natural light photographer and though I stage my photographs and am rather content driven (as opposed to straight or “discovery” orientated photographers), I just love the light!!

Q: WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOUR INSPIRATION FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS?

A: From my visceral response to the world. For example, I admire canny and strong women, so I photograph them.

Q: WHAT PROJECTS ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW/PLAN TO WORK ON IN THE FUTURE?

A: My next project will be a video piece, shot in Red Hook, NY at the MMA Collective in their beautiful, former cinema space. It will be a fight between an older female pro Muay Thai fighter and a younger amateur (but skilled) kick boxer.

Dana Hoey’s photographs are currently on exhibit at the Albany Institute of History & Art in the group show “Summer Exposure: Photographic Works” also featuring photographic artwork by Martin Benjamin, Carolyn Marks Blackwood, Tom Fels and William Jaeger. The exhibit remains on view through Sunday, September 7.
