B. Hollyman Gallery
"They talk about the kid who ran away to join the circus, but I’m the kid who ran away from the circus to join the bank,” says Burnes Hollyman, founder of Digital Entertainment Alliance. He veered away from a career in photography even though his father was renowned photojournalist Thomas Benton Hollyman, his mother was a fashion photographer and his sister is a photographer and video-journalist. But in a way, Hollyman is running back to the circus by opening B. Hollyman Gallery — a gallery devoted entirely to photography. His first exhibition, a “small subset” of his father’s early vintage prints, is a heartfelt nod to his dad, who passed away in 2009. He hopes that in addition to hosting a variety of events, his gallery will reflect a global perspective with work from a diverse cross-section of artists. “I want to showcase the best photographers, both old masters and emerging new talent, from around the world,” he says.
