Artist: Frank Hamrick
Project: Sometimes Rivers Flow Backwards
Description: The tintypes in Frank Hamrick’s series Sometimes Rivers Flow Backwards are inspired by the photographer’s home life. Using a nineteenth-century process, Hamrick is interested in the deliberate methods of antique technology, as compared with the split-second nature of digital photography.
Frank Hamrick is a Georgia native who grew up beside a ranch and between two dairies in rural Jones County, just north of Macon. He is an associate professor at Louisiana Tech University’s School of Design.
