Manipulated
Gallery See - SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Kim Anno, Radcliffe Bailey, Christopher Bucklow, Chuck Close, Dan Estabrook, Abelardo Morell, Richard Mosse, Mariah Robertson, Alison Rossiter, V. Elizabeth Turk

Exhibition: Tue, Sep 3, to Fri, Dec 27 2013

"Manipulated" features the innovative work of 10 contemporary artists who use experimental and often alternative studio and darkroom processes to expand the expressive possibilities and structure of making photographs.

As digital cameras have steadily replaced film over the past decade, Photoshop and other editing tools have made photograph "processing" a largely computer-aided activity devoid of direct manipulation by the artist’s hand. The recent revival of more labor-intensive traditional and avant-garde techniques, such as camera obscura, photograms, silver gelatin and Van Dyke prints, attests to an energized state of expression in contemporary photography and its creative potential to merge with drawing, collage, painting and installation.

The artists in "Manipulated" explore this fertile new ground in image making and, in the process, are directly influencing the future direction of conceptual photography.

Exhibition curated by Alexandra Sachs, Assistant Curator, SCAD Atlanta.

Journey around the world with National Geographic photographer, Alison Wright, as she captures the universal human spirit through her photographs. Ms. Wright, a New York based documentary photographer, has spent a career capturing the universal human spirit through her photographs and writing. A recipient of the Dorothea Lange Award in Documentary Photography for her work with child labor in Asia, Alison travels to the remotest regions of the globe photographing endangered cultures and people while covering issues concerning the human condition for many of her projects. The photos from her latest book, "Face to Face: Portraits of the Human Spirit," portrays the indomitable spirit that lives within us all.

Ponce City Market
Ponce City Market
Featuring work by: Blake Burton

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 3, to Mon, Nov 4 2013

For over four years, photographer Blake Burton has been documenting Atlanta's greatest adaptive reuse project in history, Ponce City Market. Originally built in 1926 as a Sears, Roebuck & Company distribution center, the building was a hub of activity until closing its doors in 1989. In 1991, the City of Atlanta purchased the building and housed several departments while storing countless items inside its 2.1 million square feet of space. Prior to Jamestown Properties purchasing the building in spring of 2011, Blake began photographing its unique industrial character. When work began in the fall, enormous spaces that once held merchandise, machinery, and even trash eventually became empty and bare, awaiting their next inhabitants. What started as a photographic exploration became an ongoing passion to document the transformation of a local landmark gaining new life in a city that is notorious for destroying its historic structures.

SANCTUARY: Palladium Prints by Timothy H. McCoy
The Cultural Arts Center of Douglasville/Douglas County
Featuring work by: Timothy McCoy

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 3, to Fri, Oct 25 2013

Timothy McCoy attended Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts and has studied with Frederick Sommer, Dick Arentz, Joyce Tenneson and John Sexton. He has exhibited widely throughout the U.S., most recently at The Gallery at Penn College, Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

“Sanctuary” is one of those archaic, archetypal structures inherent in the human mind, rather than being based on personal experiences. Sanctuary embodies hope and refuge in response to fear and loss—here seen through the lens of time. The unconventional beauty of the alternative photographic process of palladium printing on translucent vellum underscores the archetypal symbols referenced in this work.

Opening Reception: Thu, Oct 3, 6pm - 8pm

Artists Reception: Sun, Oct 6, 3pm - 5pm

Gallery Talk & Tour

During the exhibit, the artist will offer a demonstration of the antique printing process and use of his large format camera, an 8 by 10 inch Deardorff field camera.
