October 27, 1948:
The Brooklyn Museum opens on October 27th a small exhibition of about 35 photographs by Forman Hanna. The exhibition will remain on view through November 28 in the Photographic Gallery on the second floor.
Mr. Hanna, long resident of Globe, Arizona is well known for his interest in scenes of the west and south west. He has grown up with the science of photography itself starting with a simple camera costing $1.00 sometime before 1900. He now uses an old 4 x 5 Graphlex camera with which he achieves a good documentary record of these areas. He does all his own developing and printing.
Mr. Hanna has received many honors all over the world, is a fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, associate member, Oval Table Society, etc.
He is represented in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum, Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, Los Angeles Museum, Smithsonian Institution, Sarjeaut Gallery, New Zealand, etc.
