Torrance Hall Awarded 2017 Max Mara Young Visionary Award

In January, the National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts) celebrated its 36th anniversary with the organization’s annual Backyard Ball. With a performance and gala, the event has been sponsored by Max Mara for the past three years. For the past two, Max Mara has continued its support of YoungArts and its commitment to arts education by presenting the Max Mara Young Visionary Award. The prize awards exception talent with $10,000 to support the artist in the future development of their craft.

Last night, at a cocktail reception in Max Mara’s boutique in Miami’s Design District, 17-year-old Virigina-based photographer Torrance Hall was named the recipient of the 2017 Max Mara Young Visionary Award. Interested in self-exploration and self-portraiture, Hall creates images that evoke emotion, and expose his curious, vulnerable, and playful nature.

“Throughout my work, I explore the relationship between the imagination, dreams and the everyday vision of human experiences with dark and fantastical narratives,” said Hall. “With that, I often touch on the idea of masculinity and the process of growth and development, from adolescence to adulthood. I began to experiment with self-portraiture at a young age and today it is used in the majority of my work to place myself in past experiences and replace the words I once had that I could not fathom.”

Max Mara’s U.S. Retail Director and granddaughter of the brand’s founder Maria Giulia Maramotti presented the award to Hall at the event, hosted by National YoungArts Foundation Committee members Angela Birdman, Andree Baclea, Vanessa Grout, Diane Lieberman, Alyssa Morgan and Ellie Taub.
