Great to see Todd Dominey's thoughtful review
of last night's ACP Film Series
event at the Plaza Theater.
"Atlanta Celebrates Photography's documentary double feature on Alec Soth and Gregory Crewdson at the Plaza Theater in Atlanta was an interesting study in contrasts. On the surface, both photographers would appear to have plenty in common. Both men are about the same age, shoot large format images of a realist nature, and are successful enough to warrant films being created about their work. Soth and Crewdson also share an internal need to explore -- through photography -- the environments in which we live.
Both films captured their shared struggle to find the perfect shot. Their process however couldn't have been more different."
