Group Portfolio Show at Atlanta Photography Group
ACP is over for 2010 but the photography scene in Atlanta continues to thrive. One of the major organizations supporting photography in the South's major city is the Atlanta Photography Group, which is now sponsoring its Portfolio Show, juried by Anthony Bannon, Director of the George Eastman House.
The show includes the work of 10 photographers, at least 7 of whom have Southern roots. This show is up at the Tula Art Center in Atlanta, at 75 Bennett Street, NW. It opens today, December 3rd, with a reception from 7:30 - 10:00, and remains up at the Art Center through January 21st, 2011.
Bannon says this show is "about light. In particular, it is light in those moments of change - between day and night, between the presence and the absence, perhaps in and out of the shadow. Dr. Bannon's full statement about his choices of work is here.
The photographers whose work is included in this show are Paul H. D'Amato, Jill Ediger, Richard Ediger,Jan Kapoor, Kent Krugh, June Yong Lee, Tom Meiss, Gina Randazz, David Simonton (whose image from the invitation to the opening is shown above), and Svjetlana Tepavcevic.
Of the photographers in this show, those with Southern roots include David Simonton from Raleigh, NC; Paul H.D'Amato, Jill Ediger, Richard Ediger, Jan Kapoor, and Tom Meiss, who are based in Atlanta; and June Yong Lee who hails from Athens, Georgia.
Lots of strong work to be found here. This is definitely worth checking out if you are in Atlanta over the holidays.
