Exhibition: Sat, Sep 19, to Fri, Oct 16 2009
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.

Jerry Siegel: Images from the Black Belt of the American South
Photographer Jerry Siegel documents the Black Belt region of the American South with an unflinching gaze. From decaying urban areas to backwater diners and pool halls, Siegel exposes the cultural values of a region characterized by extreme poverty, rural exodus, and community pride. His determined eye reveals unexpected depths in his subjects, inviting viewers to ‘come and set a spell’ in the company of his images. With compassion and without haste, he captures the essence and extremes of the American South.
Exhibition in conjunction with i45: The Galleries of Inman Park, Old Fourth Ward, and Little Five.
