Born in 1991 in Oakland, CA and raised in Emeryville, Isaac Haney-Owens doesn’t recall how he initially became interested in photography, but he does remember he’s been taking pictures since early childhood. Haney-Owens used a film camera for his first photographic practices, but has since switched over to a digital format because he enjoys the immediacy of seeing his images instantaneously.
Haney-Owens currently lives in San Francisco and enjoys photographing structures and vistas in his environment such as the Golden Gate Bridge, trash, buildings and neighborhoods. One of his projects involves talking pictures of old signs in the East Bay, subtly modifying the images in Photoshop, and then using the resulting images to build shadowbox dioramas that mimic the original pictures.
