Curator’s Statement:

Street photography is such a vast field that is difficult to define. There’s a fine line between documentary and street style. I see street as more of a candid capture of culture & specific locations/neighborhoods at any given time without an actual event going on. It focuses on silly and/or spontaneous moments secretly caught, almost voyeuristic – typically a moment that no one thought anyone saw. The main aspect of street photography is the composition of shapes, whether it was a fluke or not.

some noteworthy street photographers:
Henri Cartier-Bresson, Lee Friedlander, Garry Winogrand, Bruce Gilden, Alex Webb, Robert Frank, Janet Delaney, Tatsuo Suzuki, Walker Evans, Boogie, Jeff Mermelstein. AND Martin Parr. AND WEEGEE!!
And,  of course, Vivian Maier! -Anna Alexander

Strength & Beauty : The Women’s Show | Curated by Molly Roberts | Exhibition SxSE Gallery May 6 – June 15

Coronation ©Lori Vrba

Strength & Beauty : The Women’s Show

DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: MARCH 3rd

 

Curator’s Statement:

Define women. Define beautiful. Define strength.

Let’s say you decide – not nature, not society, not others, not algorithms.

A question across generations and cultures.

Often asked in a look, a gesture, a headline, a title.

Is it beautiful to show our strength?

Is it dangerous? Is it acceptable? Is it practical? Is it radical?

Our strength is an aspect of our beauty, just as our beauty is an aspect of strength.

Do we find our strength alone? In numbers? In nature? through work? Through family?

Is it physical, metaphorical, spiritual, or ethereal?

How do we nurture it, channel it, use it for good?

Use your voice, your eyes, your beautiful intellect.

Share your beautiful strength. Now is always a good time.

“As a teenager, I stumbled upon the work of Robert Frank and Diane Arbus in the Harvard Square bookstore and time stood still. I decided it was the most revolutionary art form I’d ever experienced and I wanted it in my life. Since then I studied photography at UMD with John Gossage and along the way with many other generous mentors and creative souls. I have worked as a photographer for newspapers, magazines, and books. I have edited books, magazines, and special issues. I’ve judged photo contests, and given lectures. Mostly, I’ve just enjoyed a life made richer by photography, a medium that is wonderfully suited to explore and make sense of the world and the issues that surround us.”

Roberts curated the exhibitions; Uncommon Beauty for Art Works Projects in Chicago, Faces of the Child Migrant Crisis for HumanEYES USA, Home for the Osso Bay Biennale at the University of Texas at Corpus Christi, and was a co-curator for a Bronx Documentary Center exhibit  Visual Stories Exploring Global Themes. She has been an invited reviewer, speaker, panelist and judge for various professional organizations and is involved in educational photo reviews and panels for National Magazine Awards, Look3 Festival of the Photograph, Santa Fe Review, New York Times Portfolio Review, International Center for Photography, Women Photojournalists of Washington, PhotoNOLA, Medium Festival of Photography, Texas Photo Roundup, League of Conservation Photographers, Nature’s Best, APA, Lens Culture, Society of American Travel Writers, Social Documentary Network, Fotoweek DC, Artworks Projects Emerging Lens award, and FotoEvidence. Originally from Texas, she lives in the DC area with her husband, animal menagerie and an unmanageable number of photography books.

South x Southeast Photo Gallery

 

 

South x Southeast Photo Gallery showcases emerging and established photographers work, and houses the corporate headquarters of SxSE. My intent with South x Southeast from the beginning was to give emerging and established artists who are from, or shooting, the Southeast more exposure. South x Southeast Photo Gallery will help me in doing that more effectively.

South x Southeast Photo Gallery is housed in the corner space down this row of 1905 brick buildings in Molena, Georgia. The Downtown. I grew up here, moved away in 1974, and returned in 1997. Molena was a farming and cotton town originally. The railroad just across the way from the gallery was where my father as a child, and my beloved grandparents, watched FDR come by – on the back of the caboose, waving to the crowds, and sometimes stopping – on his way to the Little White House in Warm Springs.

The middle of the SxSE gallery space is where I bought a single-dip strawberry cone from Mr. Claude Daniels when this was his drug store in the ’60’s. In addition to being a beautiful space for a gallery, it holds a lot of good memories for me.

An hour south of Atlanta it was where my great-great grandfather moved his family during the Civil War from Atlanta. Circa 1860. He carved McCrary Road out of deep woods and red clay. We are the Piedmont – where the Appalachian Ridge spits out a few more low mountains. It is a beautiful area, and we hope you will come to see the exhibitions we host.
