Alan Huck (1990) is a photographer and writer based in the southeastern United States. His practice is mainly concerned with using various image-text strategies and with essayistic works that reflect back upon the activity of making. He received his MFA from the Hartford Art School and his first book, “I walk toward the sun which is always going down”, was published by MACK in September of 2019. An excerpt from his ongoing text project, “The Mute Testimony”, will appear in the anthology Reading Room, published by Dispersed Holdings, later this year.

He studied journalism and social communication and is now is conducting doctoral studies at the Faculty of Photography of the University of Art in Poznań.
