This week brings a wide-range of photo opportunities across the Metro Atlanta area, from a lecture about daguerreotypes at the High Museum to the 2nd Annual ACP Photo Book Fair at Piedmont Park.
As part of the Daguerreian Society's 22nd Annual Symposium and the ACP 12 Lecture Series, Grant B. Romer will be lecturing on The Past Again - Reflection of the Daguerreotype on Wednesday at the High Museum. There's a plethora of Daguerreian events to experience this week; it's a rare opportunity to see the best this photographic process has to offer, right here in Atlanta!
Jeff L. Rosenheim, Curator in the Department of Photographs at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will be speaking at Emory University as part of the ACP 12 Knowledge Series on Friday. Rosenheim will discuss the history of the Metropolitan's collection of photographs, the value of artist's archives, and what he believes is the evolving role of the camera in American society.
One of our newest programs, the ACP Photo Book Fair will take place on Saturday at the Piedmont Park Community Center. Hosted alongside My Atlanta, the Photo Book Fair is open to artists who've published books (on their own, or with publishers) to show, discuss, and sell their books to the public. A special presentation on self-publishing by myphotopipe.com about their "Real Life" photo books will take place at 11am. Coupons and special offers will be distributed at the event.
As always, you can find more detailed information in our online Festival Guide, the downloadable ACP 12 pdf, or in our printed guide which you may have already seen in locations across the Metro Atlanta area.
