About Joe Hopkins:
[This] versatile artist manifests his vision by blending history with the contemporary. Hopkins describes his inspiration as “bringing the old into the today. The old photographs, the old images of us that show the struggle. You can see it in the faces. You can see it in what the photo captures. I try to bring that into a more modern, contemporary, fun [expression]. That’s why I use bright colors, with the old black-and-white or sepia tone photographs.
