Help Us Find THE FENCE a New Home!

June 1st, 2018
After an incredibly successful four-year run on the Atlanta Beltline's Eastside Trail, THE FENCE finds itself in need of a new home for October.

What we need:

1. An existing fence that spans a minimum of 700 feet (or proximate sections totaling at least 700 feet) for us to attach THE FENCE.
2. Must be in a safe, pedestrian-active zone (THE FENCE is not suitable for viewing from a car and is best seen on foot or bicycle).
If you know a great location in Fulton County, where THE FENCE can be presented in its entirety, please let us know.

Over the last four years, THE FENCE has showcased some of the world's best photography from an international call for entries (including The FENCE 2017 Juror's Choice winner, Atlanta's own Joshua McFadden).
As the largest public exhibition of photography in North America, THE FENCE will appear simultaneously in eight cities in 2018, including Brooklyn, Boston, Durham, Denver, Santa Fe, Sarasota, and Calgary.

ACP appreciates all the love, support & attention you've given THE FENCE on the Eastside Trail over the last four years. We look forward to showcasing THE FENCE in it's new location as we celebrate ACP's 20th anniversary this October!
Please fill out this form to let us know if you can help find THE FENCE a new home!
Regards and thanks,

Introducing “Everyday Atlanta”

September 6th, 2017

Since the spring, we've been collaborating with Austin Merrill and Peter DiCampo's "Everyday Projects" to create "Everyday Atlanta," a positive, daily look at the ins-and-outs of life in our city.

In the first phase of the project this Spring, we worked with two local high schools (Riverwood & Tri-Cities) on how students can use photography to dispel stereotypes. Over the summer, the project has moved to Instagram at @everyday_atlanta for its second, more public phase.

A current list of participating photographers in @everyday_atlanta includes:

Audra Melton - @audramelton
Billy Howard - @billyhowardfoto
Enrique Samson - @enriquesamson
Kevin D. Liles - @kevindliles
Marilyn Suriani - @mar618
Matthew Rond - @matthewrond
Robert "Q." Oliver - @film_god
Rachel LaCour Niesen - @rachellacour
Raymond McCrea Jones - @raymondmccrea

The third phase will be a public installation on MARTA, weaving together the 1st two phases, coming Oct. 1st!

Bringing Everyday Africa to Fulton County Schools

May 3rd, 2017
About a year ago at LOOK3 photo festival in Charlottesville, two ACP board members saw a presentation from Austin Merrill about the instagram-based project "Everyday Africa." Barbara and Mary knew Austin's project would be great for Atlanta, and earlier this year, thanks to Wells Fargo, ACP worked with Austin to implement the "Everyday" curriculum into two high schools from very different parts of Atlanta; Tri-Cities in the south, and Riverwood in the north.

With a team of ACP volunteers, the classes investigated how stereotypes are created and reinforced, and eventually, how photography can inspire and leverage the dissolution of these same stereotypes.

ACP's effort with Austin inspired “Everyday Atlanta,” a year-long affair, and this first phase involving TCHS & Riverwood will be followed by more public projects this summer and fall.

This past weekend, Austin was in town for the presentation of the final project from both schools, and for a public talk (and booksigning) about Everyday Africa (& the forthcoming Everyday Atlanta) at Midtown Arts Cinema.

Tri-Cities posted their final project on YouTube, and we encourage you to take a look.

We'd like to say a big thank you to Wells Fargo, to ACP Board President Barbara Griffin, the intrepid Mary Stanley, and the whole ACP team who's volunteered with this amazing project; Joshua Rashaad McFadden, Rachel LaCour Niesen, Billy Howard, Allen Cooley and Candice Greathouse; the two teachers, Chris Sandlin from Tri-Cities and Lana Ensmann from Riverwood; Peter Dicampo and Austin Merrill from Everyday Africa; and of course, the students from Tri-Cities & Riverwood!

Thank you, all!
