Atlanta Celebrates


Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) is launching its 17th edition, which will keep in-town photo lovers busy for most of October and beyond.

The festival remains true to its name, a celebration of the medium, with a happy mix of notorious guest speakers and a myriad of small exhibits scattered around town. Similarly to years past, the venues’ list is long and diverse, ranging from museums to sandwich shops, 88 in total.

The festival has long promoted itself as the “largest annual community-oriented photo festival” in the country, and it is the driving force behind the emergence of Atlanta as an international center for photography.

This year again, it will be made possible thanks to a legion of dedicated volunteers and the rousing energy of the photo loving community.

But, if yet not visible, this tiny nonprofit is about to morph into something bigger. The festival is ready “to implement some more obvious changes next year,” comments Amy Miller, the ACP executive director.

Two part-timers have recently joined ACP (making a total of four staffers) and their office space, once located in a windowless backroom of a local photography school, has moved just feet away from the Beltline, one of the most attractive and hipsterish part of the present Atlanta’s scene. Still in the making is an ambitious five-year business plan to promote the festival outside of metro Atlanta and market it as a mean to “generate cultural tourism.”
