Tobia Makover’s work creates intrigue through the combination of timeless and emotive imagery that is captured through the lens of her Hasselblad. Each one-second exposure is then preserved in wax and resin through an encaustic process that dates back from the 1st Century BCE.
Internationally acclaimed, Tobia has exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London, Les Ateliers de L’Image in St. Remy, France, PH-Neutro in Verona, Italy, the Griffin Museum in Boston, AIPAD in New York, and SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah. She received her MFA in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design and her BA in Sociology and Communication from the American University in Washington, D.C.
Tobia is a full-time artist who lives in Savannah, Georgia with her husband and two children.
