Atlanta Celebrates Photography

“Atlanta Celebrates Photography” is very active this week and deserves a shout-out from NOPA. I posted all the links just as they sent them. By the way, there’s a link to a “Frankencamera” video there as well — a creation from MIT that deserves its own post on this blog, IMO. That’s next.


It’s the start of another great week of photography events all over the city and beyond! Gregory Crewdson will be speaking on Thursday at the Rialto as part of the ACP 11 Lecture Series.

“…Crewdson has published several books of his photographs including Hover with ArtSpace Books, Dream of Life with the University of Salamanca, Spain, and Twilight with Abram. Most recently, Hatje Cantz published a book of his work entitled Gregory Crewdson from 1985 to 2005. Crewdson is Senior Critic in Graduate Photography at the Yale University School of Art.”

In addition to Mr. Crewdson’s lecture, the My Atlanta Book Fair makes its debut on Saturday. ACP is still seeking photographers who have published a book of their own work for this event. Please call or email ACP if you would like to learn more. The SPE Conference takes place Thursday through Sunday. Please check out the calendar of this week’s events below, and we hope to see you out and about!
