Frank D. Sullivan

Coming of age in what he describes as the "Car-Crazy Fifties," Frank Sullivan sketched his dream cars throughout his teens. He went on to study at Brooklyn's Pratt Institute, where he studied Industrial Design and Automotive Design. Sullivan launched his design career in New York designing consumer products and, later, large retail stores.

With colleague and college-friend Fredric Winkowski, Sullivan realized his dream to photograph, write, and publish books. Together, they have nine pbulished titles in their names, all dealing with transportation and all using their own photography exclusively. Sullivan emphasizes their strict use of natural light, usually without the aid of tripods and, when possible, outside of museums and studios.

Sullivan has shown his auto-related photography in the "Carscapes" exhibit at the Art League of Hilton Head, which coincided with the Island's prestigious 11th Annual Motoring Festival and Concours d'Elegance. He is now regularly involved with Cooks and Books, an annual event hosted by the Literacy Volunteers of the Lowcountry.
