Hubert Hohn

Untitled (Edmonton Entrances), 1974. Cibachrome print. Art Gallery of Alberta Collection, Commissioned through a grant from The Museums Assistance Programmes of the National Museums of Canada. The prints were made possible through grants from The Alberta Historical Resources Foundation and the Women's Society.

Hubert Hohn was born in Arizona in 1944, and studied photography with American master photographers Ansel Adams and Minor White. In the late 1960s, he emigrated to Alberta where he began teaching photography. Through his work at the University of Alberta, the Emma Lake Artists' Workshop and The Banff Centre, and as a curator of photography at The Edmonton Art Gallery, Hohn became an important catalyst for contemporary photographic practice in western Canada. With their attention to the study of types and the impact of urbanism, Hohn’s works can be likened to the work of the “New Topographics,” a group of photographers first named in 1975 following an exhibition at the International Museum of Photography in Rochester, N.Y.
