Atlanta Celebrates Photography has developed into a photography festival of national, not just regional, significance. Coming to life in Atlanta every October, it includes this year over 150 major exhibitions and events at over 120 venues throughout metro Atlanta and central Georgia. Go HERE for the full schedule.
There's lots here of interest to the southern photographer. See especially the lecture by Atlanta photographer Tierney Gearon at the High Museum on October 29th, as well as the exhibition of Ms. Gearon’s work opening at Jackson Fine Art on Friday October 30th. Or Jerry Siegel's show of Images from the Black Belt of the American South up at the Barbara Archer Gallery from September 11 to December 31. Or Slow Exposures 2009, a show featuring images of the rural South (full disclosure: I have work in this show).
