Jeffrey Hoone

Jeffrey Hoone’s photograph “The Dart” is from the series “Hook, Line, and Sinker,” a collection of black and white images of every-day tools or objects. Exploring the intersections of visual realities and language, Hoone explains, “the name of, say, a clamp describes what it does [while] others are more elusive and poetic, like ‘slip’ or ‘tights’.”  His work is in the permanent collections of the Oakland Museum in Oakland California, the International Center of Photography in New York City, and the Everson Museum in Syracuse, NY.  He is the director of Syracuse University’s consortium of museums and galleries.
