The Southeastern Photographic Society presents Parish Kohanim
Briarcliff Baptist Church
Featuring work by: Parish Kohanim

Artists Talk: Fri, Nov 1, 7:30pm - 10pm

Parish Kohanim's presentations reveal a versatile and exciting career over three decades. He shares images taken throughout his successful years in commercial photography, giving "behind the scenes" anecdotes, and revealing what it takes to put a major shoot together and execute it successfully. He has been a Canon "Explorer of Light" for almost twenty years.

Parish also shares his philosophy and his passion on the art of photography. His presentations are educational as well as inspirational. Since opening his Fine Art Gallery in 2004, Parish has also added his fine art photography to his presentation. These images include painterly portraits that are works of art, combining the subject and unique backgrounds in brilliant colors or soft, moody pastels. His stunning, luminous black and white works demonstrate his expert use of multitudes of tonalities creating his distinctive and unique signature and style. Parish has been working with Cirque performers for the last few years and will be publishing a unique book on their incredible art, performing impossibly graceful feats of the human body. The presentation includes images and a short video on how true artists strive for perfection in any field.

It's a Beautiful Moment, When the Day is Born: Photographs from the South of France
Alliance Francaise d'Atlanta
Featuring work by: Jennifer Braden, Emily Harris, Matt King, Yvonne Lu, Holly Schumacher, Leah Valle, Xiwen Zhu

Opening Reception: Fri, Nov 1, 7pm - 9pm

Nestled among the hills of the Provence region in the South of France is Lacoste. It’s the type of secluded, picturesque mountain village one expects to read about in books or see in the movies. It’s charm is undeniable, and there is an equivocal kindness on the faces of the people who live there. Lacoste is steeped in history; its oldest building, Maison Forte, dates back to the 9th century. This rich lineage is visible around every turn of its cobblestone streets. In the fall of 2012 a group of students in the MFA program at the Savannah College of Art & Design had the opportunity of a lifetime. They were given the chance to live in the village, meet the locals, soak up the ambience, and fully embrace their new surroundings. The photographs in this exhibition are the proof of these experiences. They celebrate French culture and serve to remind us all what is out there in the world once we step out of our front doors. Artist talk at 7:30.

Exhibition: Fri, Nov 1, to Sun, Dec 1 2013
