With her B.S. in Architecture from Prairie View A&M University and her M.A. in Urban and Regional Planning from UTSA, Kimberly Hopkins is a native Houstonian who has lived in San Antonio since 2011 and makes her SPC art exhibition debut in February. She gives back in her capacities as a city planner at the City of San Antonio---the nation’s seventh largest city---and as Owner of K.Hop Photography. While in college at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, Hopkins led as a student member of the American Institute of Architecture. While her photography explores and chronicles the poetic and lyrical nuances of daily life; city streets, people and public transportation are her visual language. Her passion for photography ignited when she picked up her first digital camera in architecture school, where she applied this passion by mixing her design influences to create her unique style. Hopkins believes every photo has a story behind it that allows viewers to see her outlook on everyday life. Hopkins says she has a specific passion for visual literacy, photo sequencing and the power her images have to inform and enrich one another. Each photograph is an independent moment. As a collection, a narrative is built, guided by emotion rather than linear time.
