Congratulations, Smarty Pants! Ian Aleksander Adams' Essay Published in Ahorn Magazine

BFA candidate, Ian Aleksander Adams' essay, "On Fear and Photography" has been published in Ahorn online magazine. Following is the introduction:

There exists a well worn idea of the photograph as record: the saving of an event, the memory of an event, the indexical recording, a sign or something that has happened. Upon this foundation idea (and it is an idea, as facts are harder to pin down here) a layer of questioning has been placed. Many of these questions deal with the factual nature of the idea, probing, supporting, digging; but the line of questioning I am concerned with now has to do with the idea of the record supplanting, replacing, distorting, removing, or otherwise altering our perception of the original reality (or even reality itself). I will not be going into depth on this line of questioning (as many titans before me have already poked and prodded and I’d be doing you a disservice if I did not instead direct you to their at times overly familiar names: Barthes, Metz, Sontag, etc); I instead wish to use a dialog from a recent article, published in the inaugural issue of Lay Flat: Remain In Light (Edited by Shane Lavalette), as a launching point for some ideas on the persistence of memory based on a (seemingly) captured moment, how fear figures into the act of photographing, and some exercises based upon these ideas.

Not To Be Missed: Michael Kimmelman at Trustees!

Michael Kimmelman
30th Anniversary Trustees Lecture
April 21, 2009, 7:30 p.m.
Trustees Theater
Chief art critic for the New York Times since 1990, Michael Kimmelman will present a lecture at Trustees Theater, which will be followed by a reception and book signing at Red Gallery. One of his books is titled Portraits: Talking With Artists at the Met, the Modern, the Louvre and Elsewhere, published in 1998. It grew from interviews with 18 artists in museums around the world. The artists included Balthus, Francis Bacon, Cindy Sherman and Kiki Smith, and the tours explored their reactions to the art and to the museums. Kimmelman has a history degree from Yale University and a graduate degree from Harvard University, where he also taught. Co-sponsored by Trustees Lecture Series and the SCAD Museum of Art.

Graduate Student Opportunity to Meet and Talk with NYTimes Art Critic Michael Kimmelman

Michael Kimmelman – Graduate Students at the Museum
April 22, 2009, 11:00 a.m.
SCAD Museum of Art
The New York Times chief art critic Michael Kimmelman will have an informal discussion with SCAD graduate students at the museum. "Good art is generous," says Kimmelman. "It's about encouraging people to look more closely at what's around them." He has visited Cartier-Bresson in Paris, Lucian Freud in London and Michael Heizer in the middle of the desert in Nevada. Seating is limited. Those interested should contact Marie Belisle at 525-7191 or email

I'm thinking that super-enthusiastic undergrads might be able to attend, but please contact Marie to confirm that there is space, as preference will be given to grad students.

Below are 3 of the forms that needs to be filled out and turned into Office 201 Bergen Hall NO LATER THAN APRIL 14th.

Magazine Shoot!!!

So you want to shoot for a magazine in the state of GA? Savannah Magazine? Atlanta Magazine? The South? Skirt? Bottom line, you must collect sales tax on the entire amount of your photo shoot if you deliver your images to the magazine on a disc hard drive, or as "Tangible Personal Property." So if you are billing the magazine for $1000. your invoice should also read 7% sales tax, $70.
You must register with the sales tax department in the State of GA and remit the tax UNLESS the magazine provides you with a CERTIFICATE OF EXEMPTION, which most magazines don't have or won't do.

Listen up, this gets a little stranger: If you FTP upload the final files, NO SALES TAX IS DUE.

This is the ruling from the Department of Revenue that I received. I will have an official, binding ruling on letter head from their legal department in 6 months.

Also, if you shoot a wedding and deliver the final product in the State of GA, you must collect sales tax on the entire amount of the shoot. You cannot break your invoice down to 1/2 Fee and 1/2 Prints or Albums. If the wedding cost is $1000 with the album or a disc of images, then you collect $70. an remit to the State of GA.
