Thom Bennett


“Thom Bennett explores the relationships between legend and modern interpretation in his series The Mythology of Mardi Gras. His exploration of this seasonal celebration looks past the surface of the occasion to connect additional meanings between masks, costumes, and role playing. Bennett successfully associates the playful with the human need to recall, reinterpret, and reenact historic and cultural mythologies.” - Barbara Satterfield, The Baum Gallery – “Focal Points: Contemporary Southern Photography”
