Tell Me A Story: Documentary and Street Photography
The Atlanta Photography Group is excited to announce our next CFE, Tell Me A Story, which celebrates street and documentary photography of all styles with images that reflect 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.
Your story can be told with a single image or several images as a series.
Henry Horenstein, a world-renowned photographer, author, and educator will be APG’s esteemed juror for this CFE. Mr. Horenstein will also be APG’s guest speaker for Atlanta Celebrates Photography this year. He will be in attendance for the opening reception of Tell Me A Story and the in-person Juror / Artist Talks on the evening of September 15, 2022. There will be a book signing / artist talk at the APG Gallery on Saturday, September 17th which will focus on Henry’s decades of work and his many photo books. On that same evening there will be a screening of Henry’s multi-award-winning film, Blitto Underground.
Photographer, Author, Filmmaker and Educator
Henry Horenstein has been a professional photographer, filmmaker, teacher, and author since the 1970s. He studied history at the University of Chicago and earned his BFA and MFA at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where he studied with legends Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind.
Henry’s work is collected and exhibited internationally, and he has published over 30 books, including several monographs of his own work such as Honky Tonk, Histories, Show, Animalia, Humans, Racing Days, Close Relations, and many others. His next monograph Speedway72, which features photographs made 50 years ago, will be published in 2022. He has also authored Black & White Photography, Digital Photography, and Beyond Basic Photography, used by hundreds of thousands of colleges, universities, high schools, and art school students as their introduction to photography. His Shoot What You Love serves both as a memoir and a personal history of photography over the past 50 years.
In recent years, Henry has been making films: Preacher, Murray, Spoke, Partners, and Blitto Underground, which just premiered. He is currently in production on Where Everybody is Somebody, a film about Cajun Louisiana.
