Atlanta 2014:


The installation of The Fence marks a major milestone in the 16-year history of Atlanta Celebrates Photography, for it affirms its position as a major player in the big arena of photo festivals all around the country.

Conceived in partnership with the producers of the Brooklyn-based Photoville festival, United Photo Industries (UPI), The Fence brings a successful photography exhibit concept to the largest temporary public art exhibition space in Atlanta, namely the BeltLine.

“We thought that we should bring the Fence here rather than trying to replicate it because it was already perfect,” commented ACP executive director Amy Miller. Timing was also perfect. After Brooklyn and Boston, The Fence’s organizers were looking to expand to a new city. The BeltLine, with its eight miles of pedestrian paths and fast-growing popularity, offered the ideal setting for this original photographic installation. Even better, there was an existing fence on the eastside of the BeltLine, which the team at ACP used to display the more than 600-feet long waterproof, mesh banner.

The installation in Atlanta is the same as the one appearing simultaneously on New York’s Brooklyn Bridge Park and Boston’s Rose F. Kennedy’s Greenway.

The ending result is a spectacular display of work by 40 international photographers, amateurs and professionals, curated by a high-end panel of judges. Photographs evolve around five themes: home, streets, people, creatures and play. Style and interpretation of the themes vary greatly, from the iPhone images made on assignments by the well-renowned photojournalist Ed Kashi, to the poetic variation on birds’ movements in “Dancing Birds” by Laurie Arends. A walk on the BeltLine not to be missed.
