We’re out here!
Everyone knows that the South has a special place in our hearts here at Aint-Bad, so we spent the weekend at SlowExposures 2015 in Pike County Georgia, which is sure to be four incredible days of exhibitions, pop up shows, and events featuring a diverse exchange of views of the South. Check out the SlowExposure website for more info, and check out their mission statement:
“Place matters. Art matters. So does community. And, when the three are mixed together by the SlowExposures volunteers–both natives and immigrants to the American South, a peculiar alchemy occurs. Backgrounds, religions, cultures, and political affiliations fall away in the creative challenge of putting on the juried exhibition that showcases photography of the rural southeast United States. The result: An annual crop of pictures that manages to both pay homage to, and confound the stereotypes of the region. We present the work in historic buildings that tell the story of this long-time, cotton-growing region. Our intention is to support the re-purposing of these places that hold our community’s memories and history. To this end, we work with our parent organization, Pike Historic Preservation and choose one building every year to receive a portion of the profits from that year’s show.”
We had a blast at this years event and we are looking forward to next year! Those of you in the region, please check out this unique photography conference and consider attending. We would love to run into you at SlowExposures 2016!
