Douglas Kent Hall (1938-2008) is one of the great documentarians of his generation. His photographs of mainstream and counterculture subjects include rock music icons, bodybuilders and prison inmates, cowboys and countercultural heroes. At center is his exploration of the modern American West and the heart that beats there – sometimes violently, often poetically.


Awarded the Medici Gold Medal for career achievement at the Biennale Internazionale Dell’atre Contemporanea, Florence, Italy 2005.

Recipient of the New Mexico Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.
