Slow Exposures Show Deadline EXTENDED
Slow Exposures has extended its submission deadline to 11:59 pm on Thursday, June 17th, due to a problem with the submission system. Chris and all the folks in Pike County, GA who are responsible for the annual Slow Exposures Photography Show have issued a call for submissions, with a due date now of 11:59 pm on June 17th.
The Slow Exposures Show is the annual juried show of photography with the intent, as they say, of "exploring the diversity, contradictions, and complexity of today's rural South." It will be up this year from September 17-26, 2010 in Concord, GA, one hour south of Atlanta.
Slow Exposures is nominally part of the larger festival Atlanta Celebrates Photography, but it is far more than just another photography show. It is really a festival in and of itself, with a portfolio review and other activities, including a splendid dinner at Chris's farm outside Griffin, GA, and a black tie Slow Exposures Ball.
Yes, a black tie Ball. Not to mention satellite photography shows and a Salon on the Business of Photography. Participants in the Salon this year include John Bennette, Tony Cassadonte, Rob MacDonald, and Gary Gruby.
Submissions can be made on-line. Jurors this year include the Mississippi photographer Jack Spencer and Brett Levine, Director of the Visual Arts Gallery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
