Paula Hager

AUArts Grad Show portrait



Paula Hager is an architectural and landscape photographer based out of Calgary Alberta. Her favourite thing to do is spend her days kayaking with her husband and their dog, Obi exploring lakes and rivers in the Rocky Mountains. Photography takes Paula inside and outside of the city to find architectural gems that have escaped the wrecking ball of progress or have survived the extreme climate of the prairie landscape. Along the way, she looks for landscapes that tell the story of these places and the people that inhabit them.
