Though seemingly representational in her approach, Whitney Hubbs confounds the typical use of the photographic medium to reveal or to create a narrative. There is a direct and blunt approach to her work, furthered through the artist’s intensely dark silver gelatin printing. It is this imaginary, fantastical darkness—often conveying voyeuristic subject matter—that Hubbs is recognized for.  Her work is the blend of the formal concerns of Edward Weston, Walker Evans and Ansel Adams converging with those of David Lynch and Jean-Luc Godard. Hubbs is interested in creating a rhythm, not just of form—though this is clearly evident—but also, and perhaps abstractly, the rhythm of existence.

Whitney Hubbs (b. 1977, Los Angeles) holds her MFA from UCLA (2009) and her BFA from California College of the Arts, San Francisco (2005). Hubbs was included in 2010’s FotoFest Biennial, Houston, Texas and notable press include a recent profile in Fabrik, ARTInfo’s listing of Hubbs’ M+B exhibition in the "Top Ten Not To Miss Shows in LA" this past January, as well as an exhibition review in Whitewall, a highlight in Vince Aletti’s “Eight Emerging Photographers from Southern California” for The New Yorker (2011) and featured in Blind Spot Issue 38 (2008). Her work is held in the permanent collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art: Library, New York and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Whitney Hubbs lives and works in Los Angeles.
