The Artist(s)

hazart — artists — are a collaborative duo that has been working and creating together for fifteen years. Having met while at university, these fast friends began a joint effort towards creating unique works produced by a common goal, complimentary tastes, and commitment to knowledge, craft and technique. While their background is predominately in filmmaking (writing and directing), photography has been a constant part of the team’s partnership through the years.

Using the tools and insights gleaned from years on sets of motion pictures and episodic series, hazart struck out on their own, writing and directing five short films in just a few years— which have been seen around the globe—all while developing longer form works and discovering their artistic voice in photography and fine art.

In ‘Cinematic Exposure, Scene One’ hazart has combined their devotion to the masters of cinema with their love of photography to produce an impressionism of movie memories. By capturing sequences and scenes of films they admire, hazart has found a method through which they can paint with the moving light of movies and create something both new and nostalgic; familiar and unconventional.
