Congratulations to APG member Janet Holmes (whose work is featured in this year’s Airport Show), the People's Choice Winner of The Fence 2018, for her portrait series Is This My Beautiful House?, “Which explores how we decide which animals are family, and which are food through portraits of chickens living in their rescuers homes.” Holmes will receive a Leica Camera and access to a Leica Akademie master class.
APG is thrilled to announce that juror Amy Miller has selected 15 artists for our upcoming Airport 2018 exhibition, with over 100 artists submitting work for this show. Congratulations to artists Anne Berry, Carl Henry, Chip Standifer, Dale Niles, David Clifton-Strawn, Henry Jacobs, Janet Holmes, Karin Smith, Leslie Andrews, Louis Leon, Mark Caceres, Robin Canty, Scot Witman, Shine Huang, and Tokie Taylor.
We have extended the deadline to submit work for our 8th annual Airport Show. Deadline is now Sunday, July 15 at Midnight. Juror Amy Miller will select two photographs each from fifteen photographers to exhibit in the central atrium of the world’s busiest airport: Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL). ATL has an average of 260,000 visitors a day, making this an opportunity to have your photographs seen by literally millions of travelers from all over the world.
One of APG’s most popular exhibitions has always been our annual juried Airport Show. So when Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport gave us the disappointing news last year that they would no longer be holding exhibitions in the main Atrium, we were a little disappointed to say the least. Well, plans changed, and the world's busiest airport recently reached out to us to see if we would be interested in continuing to organize the Airport’s exhibition for Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP), and we said: Yes, please. ACP Executive Director Amy Miller has already agreed to continue on as Airport Show judge, so that is more great news. Stay tuned.
Update: Enter Airport Show 2018 now.

It was there that he learned the basic mechanics of film photography and to develop his own film. Arnon's interest in the story of how cameras worked would translate directly into his work. Arnon is a committed storyteller and his photographs present entire worlds, tender and raw.Read More
