Andy Hanson + Lightnin' Hopkins

Lightnin' Hopkins. 1959 © Andy Hanson

Here is a cool opportunity to buy an amazing portrait by photographer Andy Hanson and support an effort to get a Lightnin' Hopkins Marker placed in Houston. The portrait of Lightnin' Hopkins was made in 1959 in a bedroom that Hopkins rented from a private shotgun home just off Dowling Street in Houston’s Third Ward. The portrait is printed in an edition of 50 on fiber paper and sells for only $100. I can't wait to get mine! If you are interested, contact Eric Davis@ redavis59@comcast.net
