MFA Alumna Joanna Knox to be Featured in SXSE Magazine

Launching July 1st, *South by Southeast* is a new online monthly and
in-print quarterly magazine that will bring you anything and everything
about photography in and of the Southeast. From galleries of work by our
established masters to interesting series by new emerging artists—you’ll be
covered. You will also see feature videos of the artists discussing their
work while bringing you into their studios, as well as beautiful imagery
they've created in motion.

Monthly columns include our favorite *Blogs and Books*; a forum called *Talk
* where you can do just that; the *Tech* column—authored by tech wizards;
gallery and museum reviews where you will know the who’s and where’s of what
makes southeastern photography so unique; a monthly in-depth Q and A with an
established photographer called "*20 Questions*," and a shorter but equally
compelling Q and A called "*5 Questions*" that address who, what, when,
where and why; a *Calendar of Events* so you can keep up with all the
openings, festivals and workshops in the region; and *Classifieds* where you
can find a ride to Fotofest or unload that old lens. Last but not least, *Last
Look* asks a different person each month to choose an iconic image of the
South and discuss what it means to her/him.

Along the way, we want to hear what you think. There is a comments section
with each article and the aforementioned *Talk* for photography discussions;
we will also offer submissions possibilities for subscribers.

In addition, we invite you to write to us with suggestions, ideas, tell us
what you’d like to see, etc. Our door is open, and we promise to listen.

*Issue One, launching July 1st, includes:*

* Images from *Shelby Lee Adams*'s new book* Salt and Truth, *released in
October by Candela Books.

* *20 Questions*—an interview with photographer *Jack Spencer* on his life
and work.
