Local Photographers Part of Nationally Recognized Photo Exhibition

Fayetteville residents, Donna Black and Phillip Spears, will display their photographs in the annual “SlowExposures” exhibition taking place this month in Concord, Georgia.

“SlowExposures” is the nationally recognized, juried photo exhibition held yearly in Pike County, Georgia, located one hour south of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The eighth showcase of photography, that faithfully captures the rural South's distinct history and character through fine art photography, opens this Friday, September 17th, 2010, in the 1887 R. F. Strickland Building (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), a late nineteenth century mercantile store in the “Presidential Pathways” region of west/central Georgia.

The photo celebration, which lasts for two event-filled weekends, includes salons and portfolio reviews; a local children’s photography contest; satellite shows and a celebratory ball on Saturday, September 25th. SlowExposures 2010 concludes on Sunday, September 26th.

In addition to the primary collection of over seventy photos, a self-driving road tour features a map of the satellite shows and historic sites throughout picturesque Pike County.

SlowExposures is the annual fundraiser of Pike Historic Preservation and is dedicated to supporting the historical and cultural heritage of the rural South through contemporary photography. for more info.
