Jill Hannes interview

Photographer, Jill Hannes, discusses her work, music and influences.


What do you want people to feel when they see your work?

I want people to feel a quiet strangeness like when you wake up from a strange dream.

Who are your influences?

My influences are David Lynch, Jeff Wall, Roman Polanski, Stanley Kubrick and Sally Mann.

If there was a song that accompanied your images, what would it be?

“Ghost to Me” by Youth Lagoon


What books are you reading?

 I just bought the book Tinkers by Paul Harding and my friend gave me a copy of Daily Rituals by Mason Currey which is a fun read.

Whats next for you?

I just finished a short film and I hope to continue to do more films. Also would love to start showing my work at galleries. Beyond that, I just want to continue to create work that I’m proud of.
