Opening Reception: Juxtapositions

Atlanta Photography Group is proud to present Juxtapositions, a special Thanksgiving exhibition and photo-booth event that uses visual storytelling to chronicle personal experiences of immigration. 

APG partnered with Clarkston Community Center to offer a photography class developed and taught by artist Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier for recently settled middle school children. The students used photographic images and text to explore their perceptions of self, community, and home. Juxtapositions will feature work produced in the class.

Attendees can participate in exploring these themes for themselves at the exhibit reception through an interactive photo booth led by artist Julie Yarborough. All night, people will be encouraged and assisted to create self-portraits that integrate questions about family origin, memory, and culture. These self-portraits will remain hanging for the duration of the show, but will be available for pick-up to keep. 

APG is non-profit arts organization supporting the photographic arts. Funding for this program is provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners and Alternate ROOTS (including Joan Mitchel FoundationThe Nathan Cummings FoundationFord FoundationSurdna Foundation, and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation).
