Catching Up with Jennifer Schwartz in January 2012 -- Jeff Rich, Lori Vrba, the Bus
Some early January notes about events at Jennifer Schwartz Gallery in Atlanta --
1. The latest photographer to be featured in Schwartz's The Ten Project is Atlanta-based photographer Jeff Rich, who has on offer ten of his images from his new body of work made near Erwin, TN.
This work, made on the farm of Steve Harris, documents the effects of Steve's living so near the nuclear fuel processing plant of Nuclear Fuel Services (NFS) that he has received an enormous amount of radiation.
These matters are now in litigation, but Jeff's images bring us face to face with the consequences of unrestrained technological development in the rural South.
2. Jeff will also have a show of his work from his Watershed portfolio opening at the Jennifer Schwartz Gallery on February 3rd, 2012 and up through March 17th.
3. Lori Vrba's recent show at the Jennifer Schwartz Gallery was reviewed thoughtfully and affirmingly on the Atlanta-based website Burnaway, here.
4. Schwartz' Kickstarter project to buy a van and tour the country selling photographs was fully funded. So we can be on the watch for her photography-laden bus roaming the country in the near future.
