Hanna Agar is a conceptual photographer who loves learning about people’s passions and talents so she can build fantastical, magical, whimsical, photographic worlds in which they are the star.

“‘Tubing with the Victorians’ is a photo series done in collaboration with Eau Claire native Jake Lindgren, who did the styling. I knew he had access to the costume department, and I have many a fond memory of tubing down the Chippewa River in college.  I love playing with juxtapositions and thought it would be really fun to combine old vintage costumes with really modern blow-up toys and create a beautiful but silly little narrative. I am moving back to Wisconsin this fall after five years in Brooklyn, N.Y., and am looking forward to doing more collaborations like this and getting to work with all the amazingly talented people living in my home state.” – The Artist

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a letter.
