With the development of blogs, Facebook, and Twitter, people are recording information at an extremely rapid pace, and the cell phone is the primary tool for approaching life with such immediacy. Combined with the power of the cell phone's instant abilities, this project, co-produced by Christian Bradley-West and Susan Todd-Raque, gives a forum for artists to speak visually in a way people have never been able to do so until now. The artistic process for these living diaries began in June 2009 and continued for 8 weeks. Participating artists are from across the U.S. and Europe.

Ephemeral Musings: Work from and Inspired by the Afromestizo Communities of LaCosta Chica, Mexico
Hammonds House Museum
Featuring work by: Wendy Phillips

: Sun, Sep 20, 2pm - 5pm

Opening from 2pm-5pm, artist's talk at 3pm.

Exhibition: Sun, Sep 20, to Sun, Nov 15 2009

Ephemeral Musings: Work from and Inspired by the Afromestizo Communities of LaCosta Chica, Mexico

Wendy Phillips' conceptual work is informed and inspired by the ethnographic research project she has been doing with women of African and North American indigenous descent in the communities of the coastal states of Oaxaca and Guerrero, Mexico.

La Limpia Project was inspired by what she learned about Afromestizo women’s conceptualization of illness and their rituals related to healing. In this series, her body is the location of the rituals, and her photographs include the ritual objects and symbols the women use in their traditional practices.

La Sombra Series refers to the traditional Afromestizo belief that illnesses and instances of spiritual disharmony and disequilibrium occur when an aspect of an individual called La Sombra, (also known as the soul, or shadow) becomes lost or endangered. The images also represent her musings about the symbols that represent the feminine archetype.

La Costa Chica Series includes images made in the Afromestizo community of Juchitan, in the state of Guerrero, Mexico.

A Time to Dance
Georgia Perimeter College
Featuring work by: Marti Griffin

: Wed, Sep 23, 5pm - 7pm

Inspiration for the title of this dual exhibit comes from a classic and widely quoted passage.

"…A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance..." - Ecclesiastes 3:1.

What better way to depict certain aspects of life? People or places... doesn't seem to make any difference. It is all a matter of time. We become, have our time, then we are gone. One side of the gallery shows Backstreet, a former Atlanta nightspot, while the other side highlights some of my favorite funerary art images that have attracted my eye during brief travels. The nightclub Backstreet took on a life of its own and what an exciting life it was! Open twenty-four hours seven days a week for almost thirty years, there was never a dull moment. It was a place where much laughing and dancing was enjoyed by all its many patrons! Funerary art, on the other side, is a passion of mine. Cemeteries fascinate me with all the magnificent art, each piece created to honor someone. Of course, they are renowned places of weeping and mourning. After all, it is the final dance.

Business or Pleasure:
Photographs by Sarah Dorio

Sunrise Bank of Atlanta
Featuring work by: Sarah Dorio

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 24, to Tue, Dec 1 2009

Officials ask every international traveler, “Is your trip for business or pleasure?” Since childhood, Sarah Dorio has dreamed of traveling to historic places around the world. Her fascination with the mystery and romance of old world hotels and historic landmarks is evident in this dream-like series from Cairo, Giza, Sharm el-Sheikh, Rome, Milan, Bellagio and Petra, made over three years. Working with a vintage camera found on eBay, Dorio uses a vivid color film called Kodak Portra. She focuses her old camera on abstract segments of famous places that seem to fit together like puzzle pieces and ancient memories. The end result feels more like rich watercolors with softened edges, evoking moods that are both contemporary and timeless. Each image is a pure representation of the original negative and none have been manipulated digitally.

Artist Lecture by LaToya Ruby Frazier
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: LaToya Ruby Frazier

: Thu, Sep 24, 7pm - 8pm

The Notion of Family, Work by LaToya Ruby Frazier (b. 1983). Frazier's art explores her relationship with her family, similar to artists Doug Dubois and Leigh Ledare. The content, style, and immediacy of her work lead the viewer to assume she is documenting from the outside. In reality, Frazier is in front of the lens exposing her family and herself. Frazier is both content and photographer. Her work blurs the line between self-portraiture and social documentary. LaToya Ruby Frazier has been an artist in residence at Art Omi, The Center for Photography at Woodstock and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her works have been exhibited at the National Academy Museum, The New Museum, Higher Pictures, Rush Arts Gallery and Schroeder Romero Gallery. She is currently exhibiting works at the Bronx Museum. Frazier is represented by Higher Pictures.

Showing concurrently with Frazier in the Documents: City Life exhibit are: Dawoud Bey, Paul D'Amato, Wayne Miller, and Malick Sidibe.

Dreams & Tempests: Photographs by Benjamin Rusnak
Art Institute of Atlanta Gallery
Featuring work by: Benjamin Rusnak

Exhibition: Tue, Sep 29, to Sat, Oct 31 2009

Geography and weather, drought and flash flood, oppressive heat and oppressive poverty govern the lives of the poor in the tropics. The postcard landscapes that tourists may think of as an idyllic paradise can become deadly for families in mud-and-stick homes clinging precariously to steep hillsides. Benjamin Rusnak’s photographs show the inner strength of people caught between the forces of nature and economics whose faith and hope transcend the daily struggle to secure the necessities of life. His use of panoramic photography, showing close and distant views simultaneously, creates not only landscapes but intimate “peoplescapes,” a shared experience between subject and viewer.

Benjamin Rusnak has documented poverty in the Caribbean and Latin America for Food For The Poor, an international relief and development agency, for the past nine years. Previously, he spent 10 years as a newspaper and wire photojournalist with Agence France-Presse, the Indianapolis Star, the Fort Myers News-Press and the Ann Arbor News. His work has won numerous awards, including Pictures of the Year International, Best of Photojournalism, New York Photo Awards, International Photography Awards, Photo District News, the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar, and the Gordon Parks Award.

Visiting Artist Lecture: Benjamin Rusnak

Benjamin Rusnak has documented poverty in the Caribbean and Latin America for Food For The Poor, an international relief and development agency, for the past nine years. Previously, he was a newspaper and wire photojournalist for 10 years, working for Agence France-Presse, the Indianapolis Star, the Fort Myers News-Press and the Ann Arbor News.

His work has been recognized by Pictures of the Year International, Best of Photojournalism, New York Photo Awards, International Photography Awards, Photo District News, Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar, Alexia Foundation and the China International Press Photo Contest. In 2008, Rusnak tied himself for first place to win the prestigious Gordon Parks Award. In 2005, the Palm Beach Photographic Centre in Delray Beach (FL) featured a solo exhibition of his work.

Zuma Press represents his work, and zReportage.com and DOUBLEtruck Magazine often feature his essays.

Rusnak grew up in suburban Washington, D.C., where he developed an interest in topics beyond American borders and a passion for the plight of those less fortunate. He graduated from George Mason University in 1992, with a degree in communication. He lives in Boca Raton, Fla., with his wife and fellow newspaper refugee, Susan Bryant.

Joel Leivick: In the Garden
Emory Visual Arts Gallery
Featuring work by: Joel Leivick

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 1, to Fri, Nov 20 2009

Intimate, sensual and complex, celebrated California-based photographer Joel Leivick’s new work looks into the enticements that gardens hold out—that in cultivating nature we might desist from conquering it, and in ordering it we might grasp its true wildness, even make its creativity our own. Leivick’s photographs are at once precise descriptions, luminous observations, and sharp acts of contemplation. To really see a garden, Leivick suggests, is to find a more remarkable garden within—a garden always on the verge of its own conception, continuously in full bloom, and already remembered.

: Thu, Oct 1, 5pm - 7pm

Postcards from Home:
Work by Susan Harbage Page

Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Susan Harbage Page

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 1, to Thu, Oct 29 2009

Susan Harbage Page (b. 1959) will present and discuss her series "Postcards from Home." These lush, large format photographs of subjects dressed in KKK robes sewn from contemporary fabrics, such as a figured toile, seersucker, or Wal-Mart bags, explore how shared traumatic histories shape present-day social relations. Born in Ohio, she moved to North Carolina as a child. Being raised in the North and the South has informed her perspective and how her art addresses such concerns as the performance of race and gender and identity politics. Amongst Page's numerous awards are fellowships from the North Carolina Arts Council, the Camargo Foundation, and the Fulbright Program.
