Franklyn Millman Photography Show in Walkertown
Franklyn Millman was formally educated in the sciences – physics, medicine, and math. He always sought out a higher understanding of the arts - opera, painting, and photography. As young man living on the West Coast, he taught himself to use a camera while being inspired by the work of Ansel Adams. More recently he has taken workshops with contemporary photographers Bruce Barnbaum, John Paul Caponigro, Eddie Soloway, Bob Krist, Tony Sweet, and Richard Bernabe.
For the past fifteen years Franlyn Millman has been a member of the Piedmont Photography Club. He served as its president for two years. He is also a member of the Carolina Nature Photographers Association and Associated Artists of Winston-Salem. "I photograph together with my wife as a way of edifying our extensive travels and relationships with our family and friends," says Millman.
His work has been exhibited in the Wake Forest School of Medicine employee art contests, winning the first place award for several years. He has also won two awards at the Western North Carolina Foto Fest 2010. The winning images were published in Views magazine. A series of images of the Mexican Celebration of the Day of the Dead in the Colonial Region (around Guanajuato) were exhibited in a one-person show at the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce.
Franklyn Millman had solo exhibitions at the Wake Forest Baptist Hospital and Davidson Community College. He was part of a regional exhibition for the Carolina Nature Photographers Association. Four of his images are currently hanging in the Delta Airlines Terminal at the Greensboro Airport.
