The Atlanta Photography Group (APG) is pleased to present Postcards From Here, a collection of photographic-based images paying homage of the upcoming exhibition at the High Museum of Art of André Kertész’s work on Carte Postale. Postcards From Here was juried by Maria Kelly, Assistant Curator of Photography at the High Museum.
The work focuses on creating new ways of seeing our surroundings. Images cross photographic practices and include fine art, avant-garde, photojournalism, documentary work and more. Like Kertész’s images, the images in Postcards From Here not only look at what is around us in a physical, or literal form, but also interprets what is seen in a very personal and intimate ways that speak to each artist’s sense of being Here.
