Atlanta Photography Group (APG) invites photographers world-wide to enter images using any photographic process for our upcoming juried exhibition, “Portfolio 2021”. This exhibition features strong, cohesive bodies of work.

Dr. Rebecca Senf, Chief Curator at the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, AZ, joins APG as the Juror for “Portfolio 2021”. Dr. Senf will select photographic works from up to 8 artists for the exhibition.

All exhibiting artists are be eligible for the 2021 APG/ Museum Purchase Award of $2500, which is slated for placement into the High Museum’s permanent collection.

Juror – Dr. Rebecca Senf

Dr. Rebecca Senf is Chief Curator at the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, in Tucson. Her B.A. in Art History is from the University of Arizona; her M.A. and Ph.D. were awarded by Boston University. In 2012, her book Reconstructing the View: The Grand Canyon Photographs of Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe was released by University of California Press; in 2017, her book To Be Thirteen, showcasing the work of Betsy Schneider, was published by Radius Press and Phoenix Art Museum. Senf is an Ansel Adams scholar, and recently published a book on Ansel Adams’s early years, called Making a Photographer, copublished by the CCP and Yale University Press.


APG/Museum Purchase Award

One artist will be selected, from those chosen by the juror for the exhibition, to receive the 2021 APG/ Museum Purchase Award of $2500. Each year, a museum curator reviews the exhibition and selects works from one artist for the Museum’s permanent collection. APG purchases the work and donates the pieces to the museum. The Portfolio 2021 purchase award is slated for the High Museum of Art.

High Museum of Art

The High Museum of Art is home to the most significant photography program in the American Southeast. The Museum began acquiring photographs in the early 1970s, making it one of the earliest American art museums to commit to collecting the medium. Dr. Sarah Kennel oversees the photography department, including related exhibitions and programs, as well as its collection of more than 7,000 works spanning the 1840s to the present. With strengths in American modernist and documentary traditions from the mid-20th century and a robust commitment to contemporary practice, the photography collection features a strong base of pictures related to the American South, which are situated within a global context that is both regionally relevant and internationally significant.
