LANKES WEB.jpg
  
Matt Lankes, a seventh-generation Texan, grew up in Austin playing soccer and watching his father take pictures for the Austin
American-Statesman.
 
“I grew up around the camera,” says Lankes who has made his living through photography since attending St. Edward’s University, specializing in portraits of people in their environments. “I try to get to the core of the person,” says Lankes, who likes to spend time with his subject. “I try to make a portrait that shows who a person really is. I think that one thing that runs through most of my pictures is that the subjects are not posing; they are relaxed, and not putting on a face.”
 
Lankes currently has his work in the permanent collection of The National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian and at The Witliff Collections at Texas State University.
 
The exhibit space will feature a gallery of his work including photographic portraits of movie stars and musicians.
The exhibit will run from July 15 through Aug 29 at the Centennial Library.
 
The Matt Lankes Exhibit is sponsored by
