Wynn Bullock: Revelations
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Wynn Bullock

Exhibition: Sat, Jun 14, to Sun, Jan 18 2015

Wynn Bullock: Revelations offers an unprecedented look at one of the mid-twentieth-century's most significant photographers. The show traces Bullock’s innovative career, from his early experimental work of the 1940s, through the mysterious black-and-white imagery of the 1950s and color light abstractions of the 1960s, to his late metaphysical photographs of the 1970s. Working in the American modernist tradition alongside Edward Weston, Harry Callahan, and Ansel Adams, Bullock garnered enormous acclaim during his lifetime, but the breadth of his career has remained largely in the shadows until now. The High is the first major museum in 40 years to mount a retrospective of his work.

Artists Talk: Fri, Oct 10, 7pm

Wynn Bullock Family Conversation

Photographer Wynn Bullock’s daughters, Barbara Bullock-Wilson and Lynne Harrington-Bullock, engage in a conversation about their father’s rich legacy. Moderated by the High’s Keough Family Curator of Photography and Head of Collections, Brett Abbott, the discussion will weave together intimate family memories with insightful stories behind the works currently on view in the High’s exhibition Wynn Bullock: Revelations.

Opening Reception: Fri, Oct 10, 7pm - 9pm

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 10, to Sat, Nov 22 2014

Not My Enemy: People from Pakistan, Cambodia and East Ukraine

This show contains photographs of people from Pakistan, Cambodia and Ukraine in their native countries. The majority of the images depict people living their ordinary lives. Life goes on despite current or past political upheavals. The media and even our government oversimplify conflicts by labeling countries and/or their people as our enemy. “They hate us for our freedom”. When I left for Pakistan, a headline read “Pakistan: The Most Dangerous Country in the World”. I was greeted warmly and quite enjoyed my visit. While it is true that some people may hate our President or government, only a very few actually hate all Americans. But that is all we see. It is our duty to look beyond the media labels and hyperbole, and look at the human beings.

Dashboard Co-Op
Featuring work by: Aint-Bad Magazine

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 10, to Sun, Oct 26 2014

The American South is both a reality and a fiction, a conceptual and a cultural entity. As such, it has been famously challenged and perpetuated through photography in the form of singular iconic images in the work of photographers like William Eggleston and in the form of the photo-essay, bridging journalism and fine art as in the historical work of Walker Evans and James Agee. Issue No. 8 of Aint-Bad Magazine, a publication founded in Savannah, Georgia, presents photographs and essays which engage in contemporary conceptions of The American South and how it is defined and being re-defined; how it effects the rest of the U.S.
and may determine the socio-cultural impact of the region as a new reality and a new fiction. Selected images from issue No.8 will be exhibited and physical copies will be available for viewing and purchasing.

Opening Reception: Fri, Oct 10, 5pm - 10pm

ACP Lecture Series Presents: Dan Winters
Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia
Featuring work by: Dan Winters

Lecture: Fri, Oct 10, 7pm - 8:30pm

Dan Winters' sparkling 35-year career in photography has led to iconic photographs of some the world's most prominent people. But to call him a "celebrity photographer" wouldn't just miss the mark, it would ignore the breadth of his photographic projects and fascinations; from electron microscopes to drawing and collage. Winters' goal, to make the right image, whether the subject is the Space Shuttle or Brad Pitt, has been life-long -- which speaks to the seduction (and elusiveness) of making the perfect photograph.

Dan will discuss his work and the way in which his internal dialogue informs and shapes the way in which he approaches his photography. Dan's talk will stress thought and perception, and will act as a compendium to his 5th and most recent book, “Road to Seeing”, published in 2014 by New Riders. Dan will field questions afterwards.

Dan Winters is an American photojournalist who splits his time between Austin, LOS Angeles and Savannah. He is the recipient of numerous awards including a World Press Photo Award in 2003 and an Alfred Eisenstaedt award for magazine photography in 1998. Dan works regularly for the New Yorker, Wired, the New York Times Magazine, GQ, New York Magazine, Vanity Fair, TIME, Newsweek, HBO, Nike, Samsung and numerous other editorial and commercial clients. His work has been shown in museums and galleries around the world.
