Rural South photo fest salons registration open through Sept. 9

Registration is open through Sunday, Sept. 9 for Saturday Salon, a series of panel discussions held on Saturday, Sept. 22 in connection with SlowExposures, a juried photography exhibition and festival held in rural Pike County, Ga., about an hour south of Atlanta.

The Georgia festival, billed as an event celebrating the photography of the rural South, is set for Sept. 21-30.

SlowExposures is marking its 10th anniversary this year. Registration is limited, so persons interested in attending should visit the festival website as soon as possible to complete a registration form. Admission is $75, which includes lunch.

The location for this year’s salon is Meansville, Ga. in Pike County. The festival is based in nearby Concord, Ga. The towns are home to fewer than 250 residents, respectively.

Among the topics discussed will be the field and business of fine art photography, marketing strategies for photographers, and photographing the rural South. The panel for the latter subject will include Louisiana photographer and NOPA member Debbie Fleming Caffery.

For a list of all panel members, and far more details about Saturday Salon events, please see the Saturday Salon information and registration pages of the SlowExposures website.
