"On the Edge, Juried by Alan Avery"

Atlanta Photography Group and Gallery
USA United States of America
On the Edge, juried by Alan Avery will be on view at Atlanta Photography Group and Gallery from July 11 through August 22, 2008. These dynamic, new images take us to new places, deliver new insights, and speak to us in ways we havenít heard before. This exhibition will feature the work of a small group of photographers who are re-defining what photography means to them. "Deliverance" is one of two digitally manipulated photos by Ellen Jantzen to be featured. Ellen Jantzen has been a Premiere Portfolio Artists since 2003.
Elllen comments about her work, "I am yearning for the unfamiliar rather than the known.
"Photography can lead us astray; it can entice us into an uncanny realm. Using light, it allows us to see through the screen of reality to another reality beyond. Often my 'beings' seem to levitate between two realities, bridging and separating at the same time. The stories I tell through photography are truthful or fictitious as need be as I search for the unique and the personal.
In this series I am engaging the human figure directly while allowing an enigmatic otherness to manifest itself. I am exploring the strange and complicated nature of being human in a natural world. While creating this work, I engaged metaphor and symbolism to suggest a story that is to be completed by the viewer."
Included in the exhibition are:
H. Gay Allen
Susan S. Barmon
Lesley Ann Price
