Southern Photographers on the Internet, Late Summer 2014
On-line 'zines, blogs, and galleries are increasingly important places for photography exhibitions. Here are some examples of new and recent work now up on line.
Atlanta-based photographer Forrest McMullin (see image above) has a fine portfolio of portraits made at flea markets across the Southeast on lens culture.
Ariella Gibson (see image above), who studied photography at the Memphis College of Art, has a compelling body of work from her Born portfolio on Light Leaked, an on-line photography journal.
Rachel Boillot (see image above), who this year received her MFA from Duke University's Environmental and Documentary Arts graduate program, has images from her thesis portfolio Post Script, documenting the decline of rural post offices in the American South, also in Light Leaked.
Just catching up with Light Leaked, by the way, an ambitious new addition to the Southern photography scene, edited by Columbia, SC-based photographer Ashley Kaushinger (see image above) and Dallas-based photographer Sheryl Marie Anaya (see image below), both fine shooters in their own right.
I deeply admire photographers who can be productive artists and also edit magazines or blogs, or run galleries, or arts programs. Somehow, all this work, no matter how important it is, seems to get in the way of one's own work.
Congratulations to all who know how to find balance in their lives.
