Atlanta Photography Group (APG) is pleased to announce the exhibition and virtual opening of PORTFOLIO 2020, juried by Sarah Kennel, Photography Curator of the High Museum of Art. Eight exceptional artists were chosen to represent the best of contemporary photography from a national call for entries. Each artist featured in the exhibition offers a diverging approach to contemporary photography, ranging from the surreal, to the intimate, and encompassing everything from staged narratives to social documentary work.
“This event provides an exciting opportunity to showcase exceptional photographic projects, now in a new online format. APG has always exhibited impressive and diverse photographic genres and this is a great way to share their work with the larger community,” says APG’s Executive Director, Judith Pishnery.
