Justin Ward's Unmanned Landscapes, April 22–May 13

Justin Ward, Photography M.F.A., Middle School Rooftop,
archival pigment print, 2014, 50 x 36 ½ in.

SCAD presents “Unmanned Landscapes,” a thesis exhibition by Justin Ward (M.F.A. photography). This exhibition is an exploration of the contemporary suburban landscape through the view of a consumer drone maneuvered by the artist. “Middle School Rooftop” is the product of hundreds of photographs digitally stitched together by Ward to form a highly detailed image depicting multiple perspectives, a working method adopted for all of the works in Unmanned Landscapes. Ward’s large-scale photographic artworks utilize an aerial vantage point to transform the landscape into abstract visual forms, while also considering paradoxical themes, such as accessibility and privacy, abstraction and documentation, beauty and banality.

Ward grew up in the suburbs of upstate New York. He earned a B.A. in digital art from SUNY Oneonta and an M.A. in art education from the Teachers College, Columbia University. For five years prior to attending SCAD, Ward taught high school studio art, photography and graphic design in Manhattan.

Reception Date: April 29 6–8 pm
Alexander Hall Gallery
668 Indian Street, Savannah, Georgia

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

PHOTOGROUP meeting on Wednesday, April 27

“We take moments. Not photos.

You’ve seen them before. That photographer at a wedding running around like a crazy person. Frazzled. Distraught. Exhausted. And most likely a good bit of sweat and despair on their face. Well, that’s not us.

We take our time. We watch carefully. We wait for it. We wait for that one special moment. Wait for it. Wait. Almost. There.”
The Happy Bloom

Join Justin Brown of the Happy Bloom this Wednesday at PHOTOGROUP. #Business, #WeddingPhotography, #Marketing, #Portraiture

SCAD MOA Alec Soth: 'Georgia Dispatch'

Alec Soth: 'Georgia Dispatch'
Through Sunday, May 1, 2016

During Summer 2014, the SCAD Museum of Art sponsored "Georgia Dispatch," the seventh and final project of Alec Soth's ongoing "Dispatch" series (2011-2014) during a two-week, 2,400-mile excursion through rural and urban Georgia. The "Dispatch" series began in 2011 when Soth and writer Brad Zellar journeyed across Ohio masquerading as small-town newspaper beat reporters, covering day-to-day happenings along their trek. The exhibition features a selection of Soth's documentary photography from a variety of stops on their journey. From Bradley Lock and Key Shop in coastal Savannah, Georgia, to BabyLand General Hospital, the Cabbage Patch Kids adoption center in Cleveland, Georgia, these photographs create an engaging time-lapse portrait of Georgia's past and present.

This exhibition is curated by Alexandra Sachs, executive director of SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film and SCAD Atlanta exhibitions, with support from Storm Janse van Rensburg, SCAD head curator of exhibitions.

CRUSADE engagement grant

We are at the precipice of a crisis in our art. 

Prodigious effort is going into programs and initiatives that create supply – opportunities to educate artists and help them create and exhibit work – which is resulting in a dramatic increase in the number of fine art photographers and huge volumes of their art.  Little support focuses on creating a demand for this art.  Demand is not keeping up with supply, and if not corrected, will create a huge imbalance where there is an abundance of art but no audience for it.  Crusade for Art is dedicated to cultivating demand for art.
A sizable financial award to artists who are creatively exploring this systemic problem of demand will put our greatest resource – the brainpower of our creative force, our artists – against this challenge and have the best chance of finding solutions.

Applications for the 2016 grant cycle are now open.

The deadline for applications is Friday, April 22 at midnight est.

Want some inspiration?

View the 2015 finalists and winner here.
Read about the 2014 Crusade Engagement Grant finalists and winner here.

We are interested in well-developed projects that:

  • Create an aesthetic experience – one that actively involves the viewer’s senses, emotion, and intellect
  • Provide opportunities for interacting with the photographer and/or the images
  • Lower the perceptual barriers to participation with art (inexperience with and lack of knowledge about art, intimidating situations or environments, perception that art is not accessible, etc.)
  • Clearly identify the target audience (not “the general public”) for a body or type of work and how the project will specifically aim to reach that audience

We are not interested in projects that:

  • Seek funding to create or complete a body of work
  • Seek funding to mount an exhibition (unless the exhibition has unique features designed to attract and engage new audiences)
  • Seek funding to participate in a class or workshop
  • Seek funding for book production

Eligibility Criteria

  • Any single photographer, project organizer, or group of artists 18 years or older is eligible to apply.
  • There is no limit to the number of project ideas an individual can submit, however each project must be submitted in a separate application.

Under the Umbrella, solo exhibition by Iain Gomez

Under the Umbrella is a glimpse into a social and political injustice that took place on the streets of Hong Kong back in the fall of 2014. Covering multiple perspectives over the span of a month the show brings a well-rounded view on the struggle for democracy and electoral reform in a city run by two very opposing political systems. The showcase of images and a small print run of books have been curated to bring the best understanding on a much larger issue that is still affecting Hong Kong today.

This solo exhibition by Iain Gomez will be opening on Friday, May 13th, at 6:00pm at the Non-Fiction gallery in Savannah, GA.

Image from current exhibition: Subject to Change

Photographers Photographing Their Own Families

Candela Books + Gallery is currently seeking photographs made by photographers photographing their own families for our next book project.

We are looking for images that evoke intimacy, love, frustration, humor, absurdity, the ordinary as well as the extraordinary…

Photographs of your family life.

Photographs of your children, your siblings, your parents.

Photographs of your lovers.

Even if this type of photographic work is not what you are known for, we want to see your family images if the photos are emotionally charged, if there is hilarity, if there is love, aging, sex, ritual, celebration, coming of age, sisters, brothers, grandparents, if there are tears or anxiety or loss.

Generation by generation, it seems we are all made of the same stuff. Mothers from everywhere recognize what it means to hold their children for the first time. Grown children everywhere recognize what it means to see your parents slowing down. Many of us are parents and children and lovers simultaneously. Our bodies are changing, mortality swirls around us, our children are the echoes of our loved ones. Really, we have but a short time to kick up a little dust before it eventually settles back over us. Let us have a look at you and your people.

Please send your questions, your website links or images to:

Gordon Stettinius


We know photographers love to procrastinate with deadlines BUT the sooner you get your work to us, the better. We expect to include the work of as many as 40 photographers, with some photographers having a small selection of works. So, the deadline is open for the moment but we will be into the final editing sometime around Summer of 2016.

Copies of the book will be given to those who are included in this project and there will be an exhibition to celebrate the finished book, when a selection of images from the book will be exhibited at Candela Books + Gallery, located in a recently renovated building in the Downtown Arts District of Richmond, Virginia.

Many thanks!

IPA Photography Competition, Deadline: April 30, 2016


In 1939 Edward Steichen was given the assignment to curate a show for the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City. He asked 30 photographers including Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith, and Dorothea Lange, to document the common links of humanity worldwide. Steichen asked the photographers to photograph the commonalities of Birth, Childhood, Love, Marriage, and Death

The photographic documentation for this exhibition became the biggest-selling photography book in the history of photography.

This year IPA takes inspiration from the Family of Man, to document parallel circumstances in the world today, which produced those iconic works.

IPA will divide this project into similar categories, and we invite you to participate in this exciting and deeply meaningful event, so the generations to come will have access to these images from around the world.

- Birth
– Childhood
– Youth
– Love
– Marriage
– Old Age


Submitted images will be viewed and judged by our distinguished panel of Jurors, and selected winners will compete for:

– $3,000 in total cash prizes,
– being included in a traveling exhibition that will be shown around the world,
– and being published in a special-edition IPA Family of Man book.

The winners of each category will receive a prize package that includes a $500 cash prize, and inclusion of his or her piece in the exhibition, and inclusion in the book. The 2nd and 3rd place winners in each category will also be included in the exhibition and the book.


Each entry is $20 (USD). Photographers may submit an entry for consideration in multiple categories for only $15 per additional category. Please note that to take advantage of this offer, photographers must select multiple categories at the initial time of entry. Images submitted as separate entries are subject to the full fee.

Submit your entry now!

Note: This is a single-image competition. You can only submit one image per entry–image series cannot be entered. However, there is no limit to how many entries you can submit.

The Clothesline Project "Bearing Witness to Violence Against Women for 25 years"

Welcome to the official National Network website of
The Clothesline Project
"Bearing Witness to Violence Against Women for 25 years"
The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. With the support of many, it has since spread world-wide. See this list of videos on YouTube. View the this Google Image Search.
