‘Magic Realism: Imagery By Mia Hanson’

Mia Hanson’s photographs have a sense of ethereal mystery. She knows she was not the only one in the halls of the famous Chelsea Hotel in New York City. “The ghosts are best left alone,” she said. In her first solo show, her portraits “[utilize] the light and charged energy of the hotel atmosphere while careful not to disturb or document what is not entirely capable of being captured.” Her exhibition is part of the Louisville Photo Biennial. —Jo Anne Triplett
