Politics and the Utopian Dream

September 24 – November 12, 2011

Photography’s ability to abstract time and space provides a potent vehicle with which to communicate a point of view. Whether migrating a nation to a utopian social and economic order or framing public policy debates, the power of the photographic image was used effectively in the 20th Century by both totalitarian and democratic leaders. This exhibition illustrates its power to inform and influence. It reminds us of the future impact potential of imagery to amplify ideas using an array of new electronic technologies.

Messages From The Wilderness

November 12 – December 23, 2011

This exhibition features works deploying the visual power of photography to communicate an understanding and appreciation of the great American wilderness. These photographers have captured the beauty and form of nature…using pictorialism, abstraction and unusual lighting effect to communicate a story or to stimulate the viewer’s innate imagination. Their work has often provided the foundation for major conservation movements.
Including photography by: Philip Hyde, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Brett Weston, Bradford Washington & Al Weber.

Compliments the Atlanta History Center’s exhibition:
