Recent Events in Southern Photography

Yr humble servant is beginning to emerge from his sabbatical, at least to recognize major events. 

Here's one definitely worth a visit, when you are in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Photography Group is now hosting an exhibition of Southern photography called Know South / No South, up through July 14th, 2018 in its gallery space at the Tula Art Center.

Photographers whose work is included in the show are Aaron BlumRosie BrockAkea BrownJoshua Dudley Greer (see image above), Jennifer Garza-Cuen, Aaron Harding, and Anderson Scott.

Work in this show, juried by Richard McCabe, Curator of Photography at the Odgen Museum in New Orleans, were chosen to address the perennial question, "Is the South still a distinct cultural and geographical region apart from the rest of America?" 

APG says the work on offer "explores and challenges the idea of Southern identity in the 21st century."
