Tell Me A Story: Documentary and Street Photography
The Atlanta Photography Group is excited to announce our Atlanta Celebrates Photography Exhibition, Tell Me A Story, which celebrates street and documentary photography of all styles with images that reflect a strong narrative. Images in this exhibition are a combination of 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.
Henry Horenstein, a world-renowned photographer, author, and educator is APG’s esteemed juror for this exhibition. 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.
