Wednesday, celebrate Georgia-based photographers (and poets!) with an artist's reception at Westside Cultural Arts Center. The new book, "Inspired Georgia," is a dual-anthology of Georgia photography and poetry, and there'll be a poetry reading, plus a one-night exhibition of photos and #acpfest merriment!
Thursday, Morrocan-born photographer Lalla Essaydi will give an artist's talk at the Hill Auditorium at the High Museum of Art. Her work focuses on Arabic female identity, and she hand-paints Arabic calligraphy in henna on the fabric, bodies, and walls that inhabit her images.
Saturday & Sunday we'll be celebrating the art of the photobook with [UNTITLED] Art Book Fair at Atlanta Contemporary. Nazraeli Press, 21st Editions and TBW will be in attendance along with our favorite local photobook makers, artists and purveyors. Plus, there will be a keynote artist's talk from Doug DuBois on Saturday!
