Born to an Australian mother and a British father, Robert Hackman
moved to London in 1995. His work is primarily documentary and
focuses largely on the Balkans, which he visits regularly.
Genti Gjikola, former Head of Exhibitions at the Albanian National Gallery of Arts, also provides an illuminating introduction. In April 2018 he became curator for the Centre for Openness and Dialogue (COD), a unique art-and-culture space at the Office of the Prime Minister of Albania.
