"Memory believes before knowing remembers. Believes longer than recollects, longer than knowing even wonders."—William Faulkner
For the past ten years, SlowExposures has offered a satisfying insight into what is happening in contemporary, rural, southern American photography. Centered in Pike County, Georgia, the juried photo exhibition and festival combines workshops, portfolio reviews, and a wonderful mix of folks getting together to celebrate photography and the South.
This year’s SlowExposures, begins this Friday and highlights a diverse and well-considered selection of work. Outside of the juried competition, however, there will be lots of other goings-on, including a pop-up gallery in an RV trailer. The show titled “Hay Now,” produced by the “Pitchfork Posse,” features one of my favorite artists, Ann George—along with four of her contemporaries: Anne Berry, Bryce Lankard, S. Gayle Stevens, and Lori Vrba. If the lights are on, go on in, say hello, and make yourself at home. —Lane Nevares
