About Jill Frank
Jill Frank was born in Atlanta GA, raised in Louisville, KY and currently lives and works in Atlanta. She received a BA in photography in 2001 from Bard College and an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2006. Her work has shown nationally and internationally, selected solo exhibitions include Golden Gallery, Chicago; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Her work has been featured in Art Papers and reviews of her work have appeared in Art Forum, The Paris Review and Bad at Sports. Frank relocated from Chicago to Atlanta in 2011 to teach photography at Georgia State University. Her work deals primarily with the negotiation and indeterminacy of dominant social and cultural narratives. Current work investigates American “rites of passage,” and how they inform cultural status symbols and identity formation.
About Land Inhabited and The Works of Baldwin Lee
“The Do Good Fund, based in Columbus, Georgia, has built a collection of southern contemporary photography that is unmatched in both breadth and scope. This exhibition features 58 photographs from the collection, including a large number of works by Baldwin Lee. Lee’s photographs capture the history of the south, carefully extracting the character of the places and people photographed. When reviewing and selecting the works for this exhibition, a theme seemed to emerge organically among all of the artists featured: these works display places that are occupied. Some photographs speak to the remains of where humans once were and the history of those inhabitants. Others mark direct relationships between different people, the structures they have built, or both. The photographic documentation of the communities and histories in this exhibition truly show the essence of a land inhabited.”
–Annette Cone-Skelton, Curator
