Alan Hill is a photographer and Associate Lecturer of Photography at RMIT University in Melbourne.
Alan’s personal work regularly returns to an examination of human practice through investigating the spaces we create, inhabit and interact with.
He regularly collaborates with Kelly Hussey-Smith on projects that explore societal and ideological positions, with a particular interest in transitioning relationships between economy and community. They are co-authors of The Central Queensland Project, an exploration of the social impacts of the mining boom in this economically powerful but invisible region, and most recently Aura, which uses forensic techniques to make visible some of the relationships created by global trade.
Alan is completing a doctoral research project centred on developing cooperative image production practices with social justice movements and seeks to contribute to discourses around documentary photography through projects such as the recent New Colombo Plan funded Nonfiction Visual Storytelling Symposium+Workshop+Education Festival in Nepal.
He is a former editor of the Australian PhotoJournalist and was a founding member of the Centre for Documentary Practice at Griffith University.
