Lisa Bang Hoffman a Minnesota native, graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College. She moved to Nebraska to attend the University of Nebraska’s Master of Fine Art program, graduating in 1995.
Upon completing her Masters degree, she taught in an adjunct capacity at the University of Nebraska, Doane College, and Concordia University. Traditional darkroom work, primarily gelatin silver prints and alternative processes, continues to be the focus of her personal work. Her most recent work explores photograms, diverging from the representational world of film, while continuing to explore a continuing underlying mood, emotional tone, and darker aesthetic found in her figural work.
Bang Hoffman shows nationally and internationally; with honors including the Nebraska Arts Council Distinguished Artist Award, the Gaudi Medal from the Institut Municipal D’Accio Cultural, Reus, Spain, and a finalist in the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers, York, UK.
