ACA Gallery of SCAD, Woodruff Arts Center
Featuring work by: Candida Höfer

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 10, to Thu, Oct 21 2010

The SCAD exhibitions department presents an exhibition of photographs by German-born artist Candida Höfer. The selected works portray monumental interiors of cultural public spaces such as libraries, museums, theaters and palaces that are at once unoccupied and yet hauntingly affected by their former inhabitants. In careful compositions that are formally alluring, infinitely detailed and luminous with light, Höfer’s photographs transcend pure documentation and heighten our perceptions of time and space.
The exhibition and reception are held in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography and SCAD’s second annual deFINE Art Festival.

ACP Collaboration
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Norman Seeff

: Thu, Sep 16, 7pm - 9pm

An Evening with Norman Seeff: The Power and the Passion to Create

Norman Seeff, photographer and filmmaker, will discuss the results of over 35 years of working with luminaries such as The Rolling Stones, Ray Charles, Miles Davis, Martin Scorcese, John Huston, Bob Fosse, Steve Jobs, Norman Mailer, Alicia Keys, will.i.am, Sir Francis Krick and many other Nobel winning scientists.

Through millions of feet of film and in person interviews with thousands of artists and innovators of all major creative disciplines, Seeff has explored the inner dynamics of, and documented a new paradigm for, the creative process.

In this program, Seeff will show film clips from The Sessions Project archives, revealing a process rather than goal oriented approach to creative success. This screening and a short video of his photographic work will include an engaging audience interaction.

This event is a collaboration between ACP, Lumiére and the High Museum of Art.

Vintage prints of Seeff's photographs can be viewed by appointment at Lumière, contact the gallery for further information.

This program is free, however seating is limited and must be reserved through the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office at 404-733-5000. Limit 2 tickets per person. Tickets to the Museum are sold separately.

Urban Living
Gordon Biersch
Featuring work by: Terry Check

: Sat, Oct 2, 6pm - 9pm

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 2, to Sun, Nov 7 2010

Urban Living

I love people …. maybe not people, but the diversity, interaction and emotions of people. Love, suffering, fear, laughter, anger, despair and complacency are powerful, without color or language. Urban Living, a segmented journey through Europe, documents people as themselves without their facades. Look once, you see a picture … look twice, you see the essence of others, and maybe yourself.

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.

Featuring work by: Art Streiber

: Wed, Oct 6, 7pm - 8:30pm

Art Streiber: Editorial Photography Behind the Scenes

What does it take to produce a photo shoot for the nation’s top magazines? What goes on behind the scenes during pre-production, on the shoot and in post-production? How do those production details scale up if you’re shooting eight, twenty-three or thirty-five subjects? And what are the key technology pieces that enable the pace of editorial work?

Art Streiber is one of the best-known, most-prolific portrait and entertainment photographers in the country. Over the past 17 years, he’s been commissioned by every major American culture-oriented magazine, from Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly, and Rolling Stone to Esquire, Wired, and Time, resulting in an archive of portraiture of the most intriguing newsmakers at the start of the 21st century. Art is also a regular contributor to and collaborator with all of the major Hollywood studios and networks, having shot posters and related promotional collateral for ABC, CBS, NBC, HBO, MTV, Universal Studios, DreamWorks, and Sony Pictures.

This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30.

Featuring work by: Grant B. Romer

Other: Wed, Oct 20, 7pm - 9pm

The Past Again - Reflection of the Daguerreotype with Grant B Romer

This event is intended for an audience without special knowledge or experience with the Daguerreotype process and its pictorial legacy. It will introduce the basics of daguerreotype connoisseurship through an overview of the history of the process and illustrations of the varied special aspects of the daguerreotype, as both image and object, which distinguish it from all other forms of photography. There also will be much for the advanced connoisseur to enjoy, since Romer will be introducing recently evolved thinking about the Daguerreotype in light of the dramatic changes in imaging and information technology in the last ten years.

Romer specializes in the history, practice and preservation of the daguerreotype. Since 1975, Romer has practiced and taught this striking 19th century form of photography, gaining intimate knowledge of the medium. His uniquely extensive scholarship and experience is an invaluable resource to collectors, dealers and institutions.

This event is in conjunction with the Daguerreian Society’s 22nd annual symposium taking place in Atlanta Oct. 21 – 24. Visit www.daguerre.org for more information, or see ACP listings 150, 152 & 156.

Presented with the Daguerreian Society and the High Museum of Art. This program is free, however seating is limited and must be reserved through the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office at 404-733-5000. Limit 2 tickets per person. Tickets to the Museum are sold separately.

ACP Photo Book Fair
Piedmont Park Community Center
Featuring work by: Various Artists

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 23, 10pm - 1pm

Photography Books are more popular than ever. Today, the fastest growing segment of photography books are those that are self-published. With a growing selection of ways to publish your own work, photographers are now able to realize projects that are meant to be seen in sequence, or that translate best to the printed book.

Following the success of last year's inaugural Photo Book Fair, ACP continues to provide an opportunity for photographers who have published books (on their own, or with publishers) to show, discuss, and sell their books to the public.

A special presentation on self-publishing by myphotopipe.com about their "Real Life" photo books will take place at 11am. Coupons and special offers will be distributed at the event.

If you are an admirer of photo books, do not miss this rare opportunity to see these limited edition works of art!
