Claire M. Hay – About the Artist
Ms. Hay who is currently based in Boulder, Colorado, developed her interest in photography working in black-and-white film photography in Northern California. Ms. Hay is very much a formalist in her photography practice and while working principally via landscape photography, Ms. Hay is more interested in the formal compositional components of an image - primarily shape and textural elements. Ms. Hay holds a BA degree in Geography from the University of California, Berkeley. Her concentration on western landscapes stems from her physical geography as well as aesthetic interests.
