SlowExposures, the quintessentially Southern photography show and festival, has been bringing the world of Southern fine art photography to Pike County, Georgia for over thirteen years.
SlowExposures has been celebrated throughout the fine art photography world, and now has been recognized for its outstanding contributions to life in the American South by being awarded one of the 2015 Governor's Awards for the Arts and Humanities.
This award is presented by the Office of the Governor of Georgia in partnership with Georgia Council for the Arts and Georgia Humanities and recognizes "outstanding individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to Georgia's civic and cultural vitality through excellence and service to the arts and humanities."
Soon, the folks at Georgia's Council for the Arts and Humanities will get more information about SlowExposures and all the other winners of this award for this year on their website, here.
In the meantime, heartiest congratulations to Chris Curry and all the folks in Pike County for their vision, perseverance, and energy in sponsoring SlowExposures and supporting it as it has grown and developed over the years.
SlowExposures is a gift to all of us. Long may it thrive!
