Cooler nights and the first glimpses of autumn color in the leaves remind us that the fall photography festival across the South is about to begin.
Leading off, of course, is the most Southern of festivals, SlowExposures, this year on from September the 17th through the 20th in Pike County, Georgia.
The full schedule is here. The list of exhibitors is here. The list of pop-up shows is here.
New this year is an exhibition of images by Meg Griffiths and Tamora Reynolds, first recipients of SlowExposures new Artist in Residence awards.
October, in central North Carolina, brings us CLICK! the Triangle Photography Festival, running from October 1st through 30th in Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill.
For a list of events that are part of CLICK!, go here.
October, in Georgia, of course brings us what my father would call the Daddy Rabbit of Southern Photography festivals -- Atlanta Celebrates Photography --which started out as being about the month of October but now starts in September and continues long past the end of the month.
The full ACP Guide is here.
So much good photography to see, so many learned speakers to hear, so many events to take part in!
And there is more to come. Check back for news of more on festivals later in the fall.
The life of the Southern photographer is full, and good.
