Photographer Hayley Eichenbaum is capturing the hidden corners of the world

Head on a visceral journey to the most mysterious of spots...

Hayley Eichenbaum, 27, was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and after attending both the San Francisco Art Institute and Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, moved to work in Los Angeles. Over the years she has honed an interdisciplinary practice (hence her Instagram handle) that works to combine installation, live performance, kinetic sculpture, time-based media, and in the last three years, photography. In her 3D work, Eichenbaum investigates notions of the feminine façade – the way women, specifically within an urban western context, use beautification processes to alter their appearance based on societal trends. Although her setting-based photography may seem outwardly disparate to this, it seeks a similar context in that the focus is on the architecture being a seductive character.

For Hayley Eichenbaum, cinema bares a heavy influence, particularly atomic age films – thus the reason why her photography seems to walk the line between authentic and surreal, capturing the overlapping sensations of urban life.
