Autumn is Coming -- Fall Festivals of Photography in the South, Part One

The South may be the summer land, where the sun doth shine, but its late August, and autumn is coming. And with autumn comes the series of photography festivals that have begun to shape the practice and display of photography in the American South.

Early September brings the second Inspired by the Lens photography festival in central North Carolina's Research Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill).

This year's installment will include exhibits, talks, and workshops at all the good places -- the NC Museum of Art, the Nasher Museum and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University,  the Flanders Gallery in Raleigh, the FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill, and other venues, as they say, too numerous to mention.

You can see the full program of events, here.

Late September brings Slow Exposures to Pike County, Georgia, opening this year on September 20th and running through September 29th.

The folks juried into the main show have been announced, and you can see who is in the show, here.

This show is only a part of all the components of the full Slow Exposures festival of photography in the rural South, and you can learn about all of the components of Slow Exposures, here.

And that's only the beginning. Stay tuned . . . . .
