Exhibition opening: Echo’s Reflections
Photographer and SCAD Master of Fine Art candidate Jamie Hankin will be showing his thesis project, Echo’s Reflections, at the Oglethorpe Gallery in Savannah from February 18th through February 22nd, 2016.
Combining elements of Dutch Vanitas painting, surrealism and cubism, these photographs explore the concept of beauty and the transience of life through a medium which freezes time. Ultimately, this work seeks the redemption of beauty from the purgatory of contemporary critical theory.
Jamie Hankin (b.1960) received a BFA in photography from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY in 1982 and anticipates receiving an MFA in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design in May of 2016. A successful long-time commercial photographer, Mr. Hankin is currently Director of Studio Photography for Saks Fifth Avenue. Previously, he has worked for global clients such as J. Crew, Nike, Foot Locker, LL Bean and Macy’s. He has also worked for editorial clients such as Vogue and Interview magazine.
Echo’s Reflections opens at the Oglethorpe Gallery, 406 East Oglethorpe Avenue, Savannah, GA, on Thursday, February 18th. The opening reception is from 5:30 to 8:00pm. For additional gallery hours, please call 518-653-6326.
