100 under 100 – The New Superstars of Southern Art

Frank Hamrick, an assistant professor of art and photography area coordinator at Louisiana Tech University, has been included in the article “ – As Selected by Their Peers” in issue 76 of Oxford American Magazine.

Hamrick was nominated to be on the list by Jim Sherraden, curator at Hatch Show Print in Nashville. When the magazine asked Sherraden to write about Hamrick’s artwork, he responded, “Frank Hamrick’s photographs are quiet. Quiet like a girl hiding in a pumpkin patch. Railroad tracks. Artifacts. In other words, their appeal is understated and timeless. He shoots mostly in black and white, in richly contrasted shots freckled with sunlight. Family members appear more than once. As do dogs, clothes on a line, and Hamrick’s childhood home in Georgia, which his father dubbed ‘Hideaway’. These domestic subjects suggest quietude—and are beautiful in their wordless grace.”
