October is the month of photography in Atlanta, thanks to the Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) festival. This is the 14th edition of this annual event and once again, it holds up to its promises. Joel Sternfeld, particularly known for his large-format color photography, kicked off the festival this year and gave the keynote lecture at the High Museum of Art last week; Events highly expected this year include a film screening of documentaries about Alec Soth and Gregory Crewdson, a public art project by Marni Shindelman and Nate Larson, “Geolocation: Atlanta” where the artists mix video, still photography and geo-based data-mining (using tweets) to be revealed on eight digital billboards throughout the metro area; and a series of six video projections of Jan’s Banning’s work “Down and Out in the South” at Georgia State University.
