Frank Hunter (b. 1947)

Frank Hunter was born in August 1947 in El Paso, Texas. He lived in Atlanta for sixteen years and is best known for his work in platinum/palladium photography.
The platinum/palladium technique dates to the nineteenth century and uses iron salts instead of silver salts to produce images with a wider tonal range than any other photographic process. Hunter used this technique in the early 1990s, with the support of the Fulton County Arts Council and the Georgia Council for the Arts, to produce large-scale photographs. In Atlanta, his work appears in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia and the High Museum of Art, where in 2003 he exhibited photographs, commissioned by the Federal Reserve Bank, documenting Midtown Atlanta at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
In 2010 his exhibition Still Point of the Turning World opened at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, where Hunter joined the faculty after leaving Atlanta. His work is also found in the collections of the Denver Museum of Art in Colorado, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts in Texas, and the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky.
Hunter's photograph Light Passage (1987) is part of Georgia's State Art Collection.
