Ritual and Ruin: Tableaux of a Lost War photographs by David Knox – Reception & Artist’s Talk, June 14th

June 5th, 2017


Ritual and Ruin: Tableaux of a Lost War photographs by David Knox
June 14th- July 17th, 2017
Wednesday, June 14th, 5-7:30p
Artist Talk and Lecture
Wednesday, June 14th, 12:00-1:15p

"The ghosts of past centuries find undisturbed refuge in the American South from the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains down to the fertile flatlands of the Gulf Coast. For New Orleans-based photographer David Knox, the past resides in the present in many forms - land, crops, architecture, and people. In his most recent body of work, he combines historical images from the American Civil War with his own photographs to create photomontages depicting an imagined, surreal world set somewhere in the mid-19th century South. These “tableaux” weave together the disparate lives of Union and Confederate soldiers of the Civil War, freedmen and slaves, civilians and clergy. Characters in his fabled scenes and the symbols around them offer fictional narratives that represent and explore hardship, loss, survival, gender, race, class, reli- gion, death, and resurrection. The large-scale images on display (informed by nineteenthcentury printing processes including stereograph, tintype and wet plate collodion) explore the visual possibilities of a region that remains, in part, unwontedly bound to yesterday; where the present is as peculiar and as haunted as its past.

For more than two decades photographer David Knox has lived in the Southeast and documented the region's landscapes and people. His work combines 19th, 20th, and 21st century photographic processes in single image and collage. His photographs have been exhibited in galleries in Atlanta, Birmingham and New Orleans. He is a photography teacher and lecturer, and holds a MFA degree from the San Francisco Art Institute."

SAME DAY from Michael David Murphy / Thursday night, Fall Line Press

May 24th, 2017

ACP's digital director, Michael David Murphy will be presenting a new body of work-in-progress, a photographic performance (a slideshow, of sorts) called SAME DAY. It's a one-night only event, built specifically for Thursday night, and will never be shown again in this form.

SAME DAY
May 25th / 6:30pm reception & 7pm talk
Fall Line Press
675 Drewry Street, Suite 6. Atlanta, GA 30306
Facebook event page

"An ongoing work-in-progress, SAME DAY is a photographic performance for right now, a slideshow exploration at the crossroads of global politics and an American family. Looking for connections in the banality of the everyday, SAME DAY exercises at the edge of what’s believable, merging a personal, photographic archive with the ongoing unreality of state-sponsored espionage, thwarted investigations, and a hacked Presidential election."
