“Each year, THE FENCE – Brooklyn’s premiere summer-long, outdoor photographic exhibition – invites photographers from around the world to explore and define the meaning of community across cultural boundaries and geographical lines. THE FENCE is a collaboration between United Photo Industries, Photo District News (PDN), Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Flash Forward Festival, and Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) as they join forces to curate and produce this unique site-specific exhibition aimed at fostering conversations, and exploring new thematic directions in photography.
Armed with the task of curating such a large, public exhibition, we assemble a jury of more than 30 highly-respected photography professionals from around the world, who offer their time, energy and years of experience to curate this monumental outdoor exhibition – presenting the work of 40 talented photographers from around the world to a combined audience of over 1.5 million visitors each summer.

“Added in 2005 at the request of photographers, the ACP Portfolio Review and Walk offers artists the opportunity to meet with highly respected curators, dealers, editors, and agency representatives from across the United States and beyond. The Portfolio Walk (following the review sessions) gives participating photographers the opportunity to present their work to the general public at an evening reception, open to all.
The event is only one day. It is a long, intense day, but you do not have to take a week out of your life or empty your checking account to have a career-changing moment. Every year we have many more applicants than available slots, so each application will be evaluated by ACP and a third-party judge to determine if the applicant may participate in the Reviews (it is FREE to apply).”
This Friday, Fall Line Press will celebrate the release of Bottom of ‘da Boot – their first hardcover book by Kael Alford. They’ll have drinks and books, so stop by to chat with Kael and learn more about the project.

“Frederick Gross, an art history professor at SCAD-Savannah, will discuss his research on Diane Arbus’s work focusing on the moment in which it was produced and first viewed to reveal its broader significance for analyzing and mapping the culture of the 1960s.
By shifting critical attention from the myths of Arbus’s biography to the mythmaking of her art, this book gives us a new, informed appreciation of one of the twentieth century’s most important photographers and a better understanding of the world in which she worked.
Diane Arbus’s 1960s: Auguries of Experience was published by the University of Minnesota Press in February and will be available for purchase at the Fall Line Bookstore. Join us for drinks at 6 PM, with a formal lecture following at 7 PM.”

6:00-7:00 pm: Opening Reception for Lisa M. Robinson’s Oceana
7:00-8:00 pm: Lecture by Lisa M. Robinson From Here to There
Both events are free and open to the public.
“Oceana is a presentation of new photographic works by SCAD alumna Lisa M. Robinson (M.F.A., photography, 1999). Poetically depicting the transformative nature of water, Robinson captures storm surges and calm reflective moments as well as the formation of ice and flowing currents. Together, these images dramatically describe the shape and movement of water, which comprises two-thirds of our world’s surface.
Following the reception, Lisa M. Robinson will present work that illustrates her own journey as a photographer. Included in the lecture will be imagery from her first monograph, Snowbound, as well as her most recent series, Oceana.”
The exhibition Oceana, will on view until March 30, 2012 at:

“Any artist as an individual or team may apply, provided that the person(s) or firm who will be responsible for the actual fabrication and/or construction of the piece(s) have had previous experience in the medium(s) proposed, which must be disclosed in detail in the application form.
No media restrictions have been established in order to ensure maximum creativity for participating artists. However, since ACP is an organization that promotes all things photographic, it is a requirement that your project involve lens-based or photographic media as an integral part of the piece (this includes images and/or video captured by a lens, or media in which light sensitivity is a primary element of the material, or reimagining the uses of photography, or possibilities of imagery made with light). We encourage you to think widely and to explore this concept without restraint. Please keep in mind the “Selection Criteria” listed below. Projects that rely heavily on complex or untested technologies or complex audience participation are discouraged – usually, the simpler the better.
$9,000 has been allocated. The budget is all-inclusive, covering design, construction and/or fabrication, transportation, delivery, site preparation, lighting (if applicable), insurance, consultant fees, installation and de-installation at the conclusion of the project. Artist’s travel (if applicable) and all other costs associated with the project (including Artist’s fee) are included in this amount. If the proposed budget exceeds $ 9,000, your application must detail how the overage will be funded.
- Contact information such as name, address, phone numbers, e-mail address, web site as required by CallForEntry.org
- A succinct concept statement for the project (not to exceed 400 words). Statement must also include technical details, material selection, and any additional pertinent information including your suggested project Schedule (site visits, design, fabrication, installation and de-installation timeline). Note: audience experience is the most important part of any public project. Realistically address audience experience in your statement.
- One page budget that lists the costs associated with the project and a list of the materials to be used. Make sure your budget is inclusive of all elements described in “Budget” section above.
- Current Resume (include individual resumes for all team members). Be sure to highlight your previous experience with the materials and technology that you are proposing for this project.
- Up to 6 (six) work samples should be included in your application (jpegs, audio and video files are allowed). Include images that show a sense of your imagery and working process. Include year of project in image title.”

“Emmet Gowin studied under Harry Callahan at RISD in the late 1960’s. He first gained attention with his intimate portraits of his wife, Edith and family. Beginning with a trip to Washington State soon after Mt. Saint Helens erupted, Gowin began taking aerial photographs. For the next twenty years, Gowin captured strip-mining sites, nuclear testing fields, large-scale agricultural fields, and other scars in the natural landscape. Gowin received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1974, National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships in 1977 and 1979, a Pew Fellowship in the Arts in 1993, and the President’s award for Distinguished Teaching in 1997. He retired from the visual arts department at Princeton in 2010. Gowin’s work can be found in museums and private collections worldwide as well as in six monographs on his work published over the course of 30 years. Presented in partnership with the High Museum of Art.”
