Atlanta Photography Group (APG) invites photographers world-wide to enter images using any photographic process for our upcoming juried exhibition “You Are Here” for exhibition at SlowExposures 2021.

This exhibition is themed around a sense of searching and the images should reflect the idea of “place” throughout the rural American South. The exhibition will be on-site in Zebulon, GA in a historical building that formally housed the town’s first newspaper. This is a four-day event that hosts photographic art collectors, artists and visitors worldwide.

Our esteemed Juror is Brian Piper, PhD. He is the Assistant Curator of Photography at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA).

Juror – Brian Piper:

Brian Piper is the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Assistant Curator for Photography at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA). He holds a PhD in American Studies from the College of William & Mary (2016), supported by dissertation fellowships from the Smithsonian Institution and Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. At NOMA, his curatorial credits include the contemporary exhibition “Changing Course: Reflections on New Orleans Histories,” “Lee Friedlander in Louisiana,” and “You Are Here: A Brief History of Photography and Place.” He is currently developing an exhibition about the work of African American studio photographers during the Long Civil Rights Movement.

About SlowExposures:

Since 2003, fine art photographers and photography lovers from across the United States gather in Pike County, Georgia, during September for SlowExposures. It’s the annual Fine Art Photography event that celebrates the rural American South—in the rural South. Although Pike County is only an hour from Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, visitors encounter a rolling, verdant landscape. To add context to the images, the work is displayed in late nineteenth-century buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. This “sense of place” makes for an experience filled with shared, serendipitous moments where the energy is infectious and the conversations, thought-provoking.
