Terry Check ... Retrospective
Central Library of Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System
Featuring work by: Terry Check

Exhibition: Sun, Oct 2, to Fri, Nov 25 2011

The exhibition highlights recent work of noted photographer, Terry Check. His work features several portfolios: Urban Living, Fashion Puppet, Visual Music, Ghost Town and Rural Georgia.

Look once, you see a picture … look twice, you see the essence of others, and maybe yourself. Terry said “I love people …. the diversity, interaction and emotions of people. Love, suffering, fear, laughter, anger, despair and complacency are powerful, without color or language”.

Wherever people gather or their memoirs linger behind, Terry strives to capture the moment transcending time and place. His work explores the meaning of life on earth and thereafter. Noticing what others don’t … reaching with consequences to expand his photography.

"Fly Away"
Pace Academy - Fine Arts Center
Featuring work by: Corinne Adams

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 3, to Mon, Oct 31 2011

The idea of flight inspires. We long to be a bird. We travel into space. We follow a balloon as it floats into the sky. It feels good to plant our feet on the earth and call it home, but it feels even better to soar. With air beneath our feet and open space around us, we get a new perspective on things. We imagine. The 96-foot-long exhibition wall in Pace Academy's Fine Arts Center has inspired me to create an installation piece which is a photographic poem about winged (and other) flights of fancy. I hope that this blend of traditional photography and mixed media imagery - in a fluid collage format - will inspire you to fly away.

Gail Cameron: First Row Seat
Rhodes Hall
Featuring work by: Cornell Capa, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Bill Eppridge, Gordon Parks

: Thu, Oct 6, 6pm - 8pm

Gail Cameron worked as a reporter and byline writer at LIFE Magazine between 1956-1965. It was a heady, optimistic and exhilarating time; the Kennedys entered the White House, Lincoln Center opened in New York and the Beatles rocked America. In that pre-digital era, LIFE was the biggest, most successful magazine in the world and LIFE reporters and photographers were given amazing access to the pivotal personalities of the day. Cameron worked with many of the iconic photojournalists of the time --Alfred Eisenstaedt, Cornell Capa, Gordon Parks, Burke Uzzle, Bill Eppridge, Bob Gomel and many others and collected prints from the stories and events they covered.

Some of the most captivating images from this collection will be featured in Freeman's inaugural Photographs and Photobooks auction on October 21, 2011 and will be shown during the presentation. Cameron will relate the stories behind the images, providing a unique, firsthand view of famous figures such as Jackie Kennedy, the Beatles, Leonard Bernstein and Grandma Moses.
