April’s Virtual Artist Talk – Bob Hallinen

Don’t miss next week’s Photo Tuesday Artist Talk by Bob Hallinen, our 2021 Rarefied Light Best of Show recipient. Hallinen will be featuring a variety of work in a presentation called “Tiele: Mud, Feathers and Bricks”, featuring work shot around Anchorage. This virtual artist presentation will be on Tuesday, 4/19, at 7pm.

Hallinen started his career as a student assistant to the university photographer at Northern Michigan University in 1970. After working at weekly and small daily newspapers in Michigan, he moved to Ketchikan in 1984 to work as a staff photographer for the Ketchikan Daily News. Soon after, he moved to Anchorage to serve as the Photo Editor for the Anchorage Times and then as a staff photographer for the Anchorage Daily News, a position he remained in until retiring in 2018. Hallinen has been named Regional Photographer of the Year by the NPPA in 1996 and was a member of the team who won the Pulitzer Price for Public Service for a story on the effects of alcohol on rural Alaskans.
