Chris Curry and all the good folks at Slow Exposures have released details for this year's renewal of their annual festival of rural Southern photography.
This year's festival will take place over four Slow Days in Pike County, Georgia, running from September 15th - 18th of 2016.
The Call for Entries for SlowExposures has now been posted.
This year's jurors are David Carol and Eliot Dudik. The deadline for submitting your entries is midnight on Sunday, June 19th, 2016.
Slow Exposures is a wonderful event, very much about Fine Art Photography and about the American South.
Here is the official Mission Statement of the Slow Exposures festival, which sorta says it all.
"Place matters. Art matters. So does community. And, when the three are mixed together by the SlowExposures volunteers--both natives and immigrants to the American South, a peculiar alchemy occurs.
"Backgrounds, religions, cultures, and political affiliations fall away in the creative challenge of putting on the juried exhibition that showcases photography of the rural southeast United States.
"The result: An annual crop of pictures that manages to both pay homage to, and confound the stereotypes of the region.
"We present the work in historic buildings that tell the story of this long-time, cotton-growing region.
"Our intention is to support the re-purposing of these places that hold our community’s memories and history."
So its time to make your plans to take part in this year's Slow Exposures.
