GALLERY OPENING RECEPTION:
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15
CASH BAR; LIGHT HORS D'OUEVRES
Robbie Hinson has been shooting and processing black and white images since age 13. His father taught him the darkroom process in the mid 1970's and he has been hooked since.
Hinson attended Virginia Intermont College and studied photography receiving a bachelors degree. He continued image making until the 90's then redirected his energy to raising a family. For the next 16 years, he focused on family and after losing his son in an auto accident in 2009, he decided to jump back into the art with both feet. He set up a lab in his Lugoff home, dusted off his gear and got back to what he loves...the art of images.
Hinson does conventional black and white work handling all film and print processing his self, Robbie works in digital as well, but his favorite form is a combination of both--shooting conventional black and white film, processing it, then scanning it into the computer for printing. All of Hinson's prints, whether conventional or digital are printed to be archival on 100% cotton rag, acid-free paper.
Hinson believes that photography is both art and documentary. He believes that black and white imagery somehow elevates the subject in a way that color cannot. It somehow makes the subject more raw, more elemental and more important than it would be otherwise.
