Photography

Hedison first exhibited her series of abstract landscapes at Rose Gallery in Bergamot Station, Los Angeles. In 2005, she exhibited the (Re)Building series, which addressed themes of loss, transition and recovery while using construction as a metaphor for memory in the architecture of the subconscious. Her series of large format photographs entitled Ithaka, which takes its title from the CP Cavafy poem of the same name, was shot in the temperate rain forest of North America. First exhibited in London, Ithaka was included in the New Yorker's 2008 Passport to the Arts and Month of Photography Los Angeles the following year.

Hedison's work is represented in public and private collections worldwide, and her photographs have been shown in one-person and group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the US and Europe including Los Angeles, New York, and London.

Hedison was selected by Barclays Capital for International sponsorship in 2008.
