Hillary Goidell is an artist and photographer based in the Bay Area. Her projects elaborate on the notion of witnessing, rooted in anthropology and nurtured by work with technology, museums, visual artists and choreographers.
Within the framework of performance, she collaborates with choreographers to photograph creative process, advocating for images that reveal rather than describe the emotional and physical workings of dance-making.
She photographs larger processes like end of life and situations that challenge us intensely as humans. These images act as imprints for accessing embodiment and experience.
Hillary has shown her work in galleries and theater venues in Paris and San Francisco.
Her photographs have appeared in publications, museum catalogs and theater programs in the US and Europe.
