Race, gender, identity, beauty, and social equity are dominant themes addressed by artists featured in the 2020 Atlanta Celebrates Photography Ones To Watch selection by independent curator Mary Stanley at a sassy, multimedia exhibition at MINT Gallery. These eleven young photographers are making work that is optimistic, controversial, and beautiful in response to the challenges that face this next generation of documentary and fine art photographers. Their timely and thoughtful representations have elevated their role as spokespersons on social media and other visual platforms. Their photographs effectively depict the way that they feel about current events and offer constructive perspectives on why and how things need to change.
Rosie Brock, Alexis Childress, Patrick Di Rito, Genevieve Gaignard, Antonio Johnson, Marissa Leshnov, Brandon McClain, Savana Ogburn, Parker Reinecker, and twins Jackson & Joshua Stewart have all garnered impressive recognition for their creative endeavors and should be considered by serious collectors as beacons for the times we live in. Ranging in age from 25 to 39 and hailing from cities from Oakland to Atlanta, these emerging and established talents will surely endure.
Online: Panel Discussion Oct 10 12:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Social disruptor and photo diva Genevieve Gaignard and independent curator Mary Stanley will lead the panel discussion featuring the 2020 ACP Ones To Watch artists at their live exhibition Good Trouble broadcasting live from MINT Gallery at the Met in SW Atlanta.
