We had a great weekend at the Decatur Book Festival with our annual Photobook Fair! Big kudos to Ain’t-Bad Magazine (Taylor, Taylor & Jessica), Fall Line Press (Megan, Roby & the indefatigable Edwin Robinson) and Robert Shults & E. Brady Robinson with their publications from Daylight Books! We thank you all for the good humor and comradery while sweating-it-out in the heat. Didn’t hurt to be fifteen feet from the King of Pops, right?
As you’ll see below, we had some fun while keeping cool & giving away thousands of ACP Festival Guides, and talking to so many of you about the festival and the intersection of photography & books. Thank you for your interest and support!

We wanted to wrap-up this week with a look at FOX 5’s story about ACP’s ongoing program with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, where Corinne Adams and dedicated volunteers have been teaching photography to inpatients for the last year.
As FOX 5 Medical reporter Beth Galvin says, “it was a powerful experience.”
Please have a look at the video and check out the story when you get the chance. It’s a heartwarming way to start the weekend!
Special thanks to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Corinne Adams, ACP’s Executive Board, the High Museum of Art, and everyone who’s helped make this program a reality.
Here’s video of Chip Simone’s “Spotlight Series” lecture at the High Museum. The conversation begins at about six minutes into the video.
This year’s ACP Portfolio Review was at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, and the Portfolio Walk had a special spirit of photographers, reviewers and the public connecting in new and exciting ways. Here’s a brief look at the Walk & Reception, featuring interviews with Judy Lampert, Valerie Oliveiro, Alan Chimacoff, and a reviewer, Darren Ching of Klompching Gallery.
Our latest ACP Video Preview presents Festival Event #85, Atlanta, Past and Present: A collection of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s great photographers, which opens at Jill Celeste Gallery tomorrow night (Thurs.) with a reception at 7pm.
Atlanta photographer Charlie McCullers has two exhibitions during ACP 2011, one at the Atlanta Ballet, where McCullers is lead photographer, and the other in Buckhead, at BEE, which is on view this Saturday. We talked with Charlie about his work for the ballet last week, and we hope you enjoy the preview of his show.
