For those of you who are seriously interested in contemporary photography save the date for: Gallery Conversation: Rizvana Bradley, Rujeko Hockley and Steffani Jemison.

We'll meet 30 minutes before the gallery talk begins to view Steffani Jemison's photography.

"Rizvana Bradley, Assistant Professor of Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies at Emory University, will moderate a conversation between Steffani Jemison and Rujeko Hockley, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Brooklyn Museum, about Jemison’s rigorous meditations on the nature of photography and photo-based work, including experimental video, and how Jemison confronts assumptions about these mediums, their form and materiality, through her engagement with Black history and aesthetics."

"In 2009 Hagedorn Foundation Gallery opened under the mentorship of Julian Cox, Curator of Photography at the Getty and High Museums. Since that time, the not–for-profit gallery has extended the scope of photography and photo based art in Atlanta focusing on contemporary practices which foreground social and political issues and which frequently push the definition of documentary tradition and artistic manipulation. Exhibitions are augmented by lectures and talks at the gallery by exhibiting artists and panels of cultural, art historical and theoretical experts. Hagedorn Foundation Gallery also offers classic images and vintage and secondary market collections.

Over the past three years the gallery has exhibited emerging and established photographers commenting directly on our culture including: Dawoud Bey, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Daniel Gordon, Lisa Kereszi, Demetrius Oliver, Martin Parr, Brian Ulrich, Penelope Umbrico, Jason Salavon, Kerry Skarabakka and Amir Zaki.

    Hey Paulette and everyone, a few of us attended a lecture last night with a great architectural photographer Richard Pare from the UK, recently specializing in photodocumenting the works of the great Le Corbusier. The Lumiere Gallery is right by where your lecture is already scheduled, and they are having a reception featuring this photograper on site to discuss his work they are showing, beginning 10am (to noon)! Seems convenient to stop by on your way to the scheduled lecture? He was talking about digital tiling and how important stitching multiple images together was in allowing him to best portray some of the complex interiors; a very interesting man with lovingly thought out shots of great architecture. The gallery is:
    425 Peachtree Hills Avenue

    I would go to both of these but have a prior conflict; y'all have fun! This gallery was on the upstairs floor when I went previously, assume they are still there.
