Jeffery Scott (AKA 1019) creates photographic images that stretch boundaries and redefine standards. His photographic works are powerful juxtapositions of light and darkness.

Dividing Me Photography (Rusty James) is a North Carolina based Artist who specializes in dark, whimsical emotive imagery. His work is often timeless in its historical placement and ambiguous in its intention.

Thomas Dodd is an Atlanta-based photographer/ digital artist whose work blurs the line between photography and classical art. He has pioneered and popularized a method he calls "Painting with Photography". His work displayed in galleries around the world.

John Santerineross is an (Athens) artist who does not classify or categorize himself; he prefers to let the viewer decide and define his work. He has been called “the world’s leading Neo-symbolist photographer” by Germany’s leading photography magazine, PROFIFOTO.

The DornBrothers (Atlanta) A brother team whose conceptual and imaginative work often titers towards the lighter side of imagery. Always dramatic, their portraits often seem like they were cut from a old Hollywood movie or a Far Side Cartoon.

ACP Public Art - Geolocation: Atlanta by Marni Shindelman and Nate Larson
Big House Gallery
Featuring work by: Nate Larson, Marni Shindelman

Artists Talk: Thu, Oct 18, 6:30pm - 8pm

In the cacaphony and crowded hubbub of social media, it's nearly impossible to know who's listening. Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman's "Geolocation: Atlanta" project has its ear to the ground, mining (and revealing) the increasing divide between public and private when broadcasting one's thoughts on Twitter. By discovering and photographing the real-world locations of tweets, Larson/Shindelman are new kinds of documentarians whose photographic subjects declare themselves in less than 140 characters.

Seamlessly weaving together video, still photography, and geo-based data-mining, Larson/Shindelman's project gives significance to insignificance, revealing the most innocuous thought (tweeted) as a permanent act of infinite possibility.

"Geolocation: Atlanta" will be exhibited on 8 digital billboards throughout the Atlanta metro area starting Oct. 1st, and will be witnessed by more than a million commuters and pedestrians during its installation.

Jan Banning

ACP Special Exhibition - Jan Banning - Down and Out in the South
Big House Gallery
Featuring work by: Jan Banning

Artists Reception: Thu, Oct 18, 6:30pm - 8:30pm

A Dutch photographer whose scope includes a global look at power, governments, and the effects of war, Jan Banning has recently been photographing in the US to produce a documentary project on the Southeast's homeless population. Utilizing a time-honored portrait style that recalls 17th-century Dutch painting, Banning's portraits reveal the homeless not for what they lack, but for who they are.

A photographer who often investigates typologies for what they say about our sameness and differences, Banning's work, in book form, has explored Bureaucratics (Nazraeli, 2008), Comfort Women/Troostmeisjes (Ipso Facto/Seltmann+Söhne Utrecht/Lüdenscheid, 2010) and 2005's Traces of War: Survivors of the Burma and Sumatra Railways (Trolley Books).

Banning's project Down and Out in the South will also be visible in a series of six video projections during ACP in a public installation at the Digital Arts Entertainment Lab at Georgia State, on the corner of Pryor St. and Edgewood Avenue at the SE corner of Woodruff Park from October 18 - 31.
