 If you  will be able to travel to Atlanta in October, Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) is holding its annual photography festivities again this fall. Included is a great opportunity to have your portfolio work reviewed. Apply today!

The ACP 2014 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.

Sponsored in part by Turner Broadcasting and their “Turner Voices” initiative, 17 reviewers and 51 artists will meet on Saturday, October 11th, 2014. Each photographer will meet privately with at least five reviewers for twenty minutes each.

Anyone can apply for this excellent learning opportunity but it comes with a couple of caveats. First, because of there regularly being a surplus of applicants, not all those who apply will be able to take part. Secondly, if you happen to be accepted, there is a charge of $300. Considering the potential exposure and networking opportunities on top of what one might learn, it’s still very much worth it to those who are dedicated. Make sure to act fast as the deadline for submission is July 27th.

Edward Weston, Nude, 1936

For great coverage of PHotoEspana events it pays to subscribe to Le Journal de la Photographie:

Harry Callahan (1912-1999) and Edward Weston (1886-1958) are two of the great American masters of photography. Both developed intense and long careers in which they dealt amply with the nude. The exhibition He, She, It features a selection of eighty pieces that moves away from the topics of erotic photography.

Unlike those pieces that seek to induce desire through the image, the work of Weston and Callahan transforms desires into images. Both artists love their models, who are their own wives or lovers. The pictures become an erotic expression filled with subjectivity and affection; hence, the act of shooting the photos is similar to lovemaking, as it entails a connection with the loved one through vision.

From the Nicole Straus Public Relations firm we have received a write-up on the AIPAD exhibition results. Judging by the exhibitor comments it was a great year for sales of photographs. In addition photographers received a great viewing audience of stars, collectors and curators:

Attendance at the fair, which is the longest-running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography, increased to 11,500 – a record high for the Show.

Eighty-two of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries presented a wide range of museum-quality work, and a new booth design complemented the presentations. The show featured contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video, and new media.

AIPAD also drew a wide range of curators from such institutions as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; International Center for Photography, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York: The Morgan Library and Museum, New York; The Philadelphia Museum of Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Art Institute of Chicago;  Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art; Detroit Institute of Arts; George Eastman House, Rochester, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; New Orleans Museum of Art; National Gallery of Canada, Ontario; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; and Tate Modern, London.

Quite a show indeed …
