The Atlanta Photography Group is excited to announce our next CFE, Tell Me A Story, which is celebrating street and documentary photography of all styles with a strong narrative. We are looking for your most compelling stories – they can be candid depictions of everyday life, shadows of the city streets, the abandonment of a country road, subtle moments of joy, humor, love, fear or anxiety. Think of work like that created by Diane Arbus, Bruce Davidson, Robert Frank, Josef Koudleka, Helen Levitt, Baldwin Lee, Roy DeCarava, Mary Ellen Mark, Daido Moriyama, Lee Friedlander, Lisette Model, Gordon Parks, and Harry Callahan.
Use your photography to explore the sculptural side of books! Students in this four-week class will learn how to use the accordion book structure to reveal photographic narratives. Demos will be given on how to construct accordion books three different ways, plus a few more variations. Along the way, students will create their own handmade books that express their personal photographic content. All levels of experience are welcome. workshop leader: Cynthia Lollis is a professor of printmaking and book arts in Atlanta.
APG is excited to announce our latest Project Development Intensive Workshop with Beth Lilly. This intensive workshop consists of a series of 10 classes spread out over a 4-month period. Intended to help you develop the skills, knowledge, and structure necessary to create a photographic series or enrich a current body of work, this workshop combines the benefits of engaging a mentor for an extended period, with the structure that regular participation in supportive group critiques can offer. In this intensive, accomplished artist and educator Beth Lilly will give presentations, provide interactive exercises, moderate group critiques, and mentor photographers as they work toward developing a photographic series.
Elevate APG 2022 is APG's first staff exhibition to benefit ongoing educational programming expenses and operational costs associated with the gallery space.
Our goal with Elevate APG 2022 is to also give our immensely dedicated staff, volunteers, and board members the opportunity to show and sell their work, while supporting APG as a non-profit arts organization. Many of the artists participating in this year's exhibition rarely exhibit work in the Atlanta area, so it is truly a treat.
