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.

: Thu, Sep 24, 5:30pm - 7:30pm

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.
