Kiang Gallery
Featuring work by: Zhang Dali, Chi Peng, Danielle Roney

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 8, to Thu, Dec 23 2010

CHI PENG, Beijing.
Between No Longer and Not Yet, a solo exhibition of five new large format staged color photographs, brilliantly capturing the essence of a state of mind or a mood, which may be hard to remember, constantly shifting between mood and memory; one never truly knows or understands what state of mind he or she is in. Was it temporary mood; or was it permanent memory or something in between?

Kenan Research Center, Atlanta History Center

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 9, to Sat, Jan 29 2011

Exceptional and rare images from the dawn of photography highlight this exhibition that covers the birth and growth of the medium through nearly three decades, 1840 – 1865. The major technological advances in photographic processes are represented, including daguerreotypes and ambrotypes, along with innovative stylistic techniques in the development of portraiture. A variety of subjects are displayed, from family pets, post-mortem scenes, occupational and military subjects, and the work of 19th-century master photographers.

These unique, historical images have been passionately collected for over thirty years by Atlanta residents George and Susan Whiteley. The Face of America is a featured exhibition of this year’s Daguerreian Society annual symposium hosted by the Atlanta History Center in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography.

Ghost Town
Paige Harvey Art Studio
Featuring work by: Terry Check

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 9, to Sat, Nov 6 2010

Many years ago, two tropical storms struck the Sonoran Desert in California, and turned the Salton Sea upside down including the community, Bombay Beach. Part of the town was either under water or half-buried in mud. Life never returned to normal. A ghost town remains along the beach. Homes were destroyed, family mementos washed away and livelihoods vanished. Wreckage and memories linger for all to wonder about "Ghost Town".

Raised in Utica, NY and of Polish decent, Terry has photographed people and places for the past forty years. Beginning at an early age and advancing to PR photographer at MVCC, he exhibited his work “Collegiate Profiles” at a local gallery. While at Case Western Reserve University, he did commercial photography for a local studio. After graduation, he worked as an environmental engineer and continued pursing his photography ... people less their facades.

Wherever people gather or their memoirs linger behind, Terry strives to capture the moment transcending time and place. His work searches for the individual’s meaning of life on earth and thereafter. Noticing what others don’t ... reaching without consequences to expand his photography.

The Chronicles of Follicles
MINT Gallery
Featuring work by: Nate Dorn, Travis Dorn

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 9, to Sun, Oct 31 2010

“A man’s face can grow it’s own art. It is a canvas for which the owner can decide how he wants to present himself. Obviously some men have more to work with than others (which can be a either a blessing or a curse). Why grow facial hair? Why not? The associations and stereotypes that surround different style of facial hair is quite amazing, there generally is only a few degrees of difference between the iconic look of a Greek god and a homeless man, between an officer and a porn star, between a hippy and a confederate general. Facial hair is more then just hair on the face, it says something about the man behind it, it’s a very personal choice. In The Chronicles of Follicles series, the Dorn Brothers explore and play with those associations and iconic symbols in a surreal and fictional way."

The large print photos have a cinematic tone to them and the subjects in the series range in age, occupation, nationality, and beard length.

Laura Poitras: O’ Say Can You See? and Steve Aishman and Jaimie Warren: Recent Photographs
Atlanta Contemporary Art Center
Featuring work by: Steve Aishman, Laura Poitras, Jaimie Warren

: Sat, Oct 9, 8pm - 10pm

O’ Say Can You See? is Laura Poitras’s film installation that documents the moment of innocence when America waited for the dead to arise. Filmed in September 2001 at Ground Zero in New York, with audio recorded at the Yankees come-from-behind Game 4 World Series victory in October 2001, it is a meditation on loss and revenge.

Atlanta-based Steve Aishman and Kansas City-based Jaimie Warren are photographers who create portraits and still lifes that speak to conditions of friendship, food, popular culture, and absurdity. Their works are presented in a two-person exhibition focusing on their use of staged scenarios and snapshot aesthetics.
