Thursday, May 17th

Join South X Southeast Workshop and Gallery's Nancy McCrary and Photographer David Carol at 6 pm for a Welcome Dinner at the home of one of Atlanta’s premiere Photography Collectors. David will give a presentation of his work, and we’ll talk about the agenda for the following two days, while we dine on nouveau Southern cuisine in a fabulous setting amidst great photography.

Friday, May 18th

The day begins at 11 am when the group meets at the Hyatt Midtown, 10th and Peachtree, for a lunchtime stroll down Peachtree Street shooting with Photographer David Carol. David will focus on how to notice your surroundings, be in the moment and “feel” the movements and actions of the people, and how to translate that into a photograph. All this in the heart of downtown Atlanta.

Saturday, May 19th

The class will meet in the atrium of the High Museum at 9:30a for a 10:00a docent’s tour of the exhibition Mark Steinmetz: Terminus

The High Museum of Art began collecting photographs in the early 1970s, making it among the earliest museums to commit to the medium. Today, the High’s photography department is one of the nation’s leading programs and, with some 6,500 prints, comprises the Museum’s largest collection.

The High Museum of Art will debut more than 60 new works by Athens-based photographer Mark Steinmetz commissioned for its “Picturing the South” series in Mark Steinmetz: Terminus on view through June 3, 2018. Established in 1996, “Picturing the South” is a distinctive initiative that asks noted photographers to turn their lenses toward the American South to create work for the High’s collection. For his commission, Steinmetz focused on air travel and Atlanta’s Hartsfield–Jackson International Airport—the most heavily trafficked airport in the world. Taking its title from Atlanta’s original name, the exhibition closely considers the activity and interactions that make the airport the crossroads of the New South.
