PHOTOGRAPHS OF ROBERT HANNAN OFFER UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES AND QUIET COMMENTARY ON THE ODDLY FAMILIAR
Unique perspectives on the ordinary artifacts and environs of humanity are the focus of “Short Stories”, an exhibition of the work of Concord-based photographer Robert Hannan. Short Stories is appearing in the Emerging Artist Gallery at the Griffin Museum of Photography, April 8 thru June 11.
Not so much landscapes as snapshots of the spaces around us, Hannan’s images recognize the inherent attributes of form and color that are the ever present but often overlooked ingredients of ordinary places and things. Rendered and articulated with a touch of oddity, his photographs hint at a story that the viewer will never hear.
“Hannan composes and frames his images in a very unique and sometimes amusing way,” explained Griffin Museum Executive Director Blake Fitch. “Segments of space and color, shapes and patterns are presented in such a way that you can’t help but see the elements in a different light and appreciate their beauty.”
Hannan studied studio art at Narazeth College in Rochester, NY and furthered his artistic studies at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina, Rhode Island School of Design, New England School of Art and Design, and New England School of Photography. He has won numerous awards in juried shows in the Boston area.
The Griffin Museum of Photography is open Tuesday through Sunday, 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for members and seniors. Children under 12 are admitted free. Admission is free to all every Thursday. For more information, call 781-729-1158, or visit www.griffinmuseum.org.
