Atlanta: Matre Gallery Opening this Thursday

I invite anyone in the Atlanta area to join me this coming Thursday at a gallery opening of some of my work at the Matre Gallery.

There will be an opening reception on Thursday, October 8th, 2009 from 7-9 p.m.  I will of course be present and should you not be able to make it that evening, the show will continue through November 3rd.

Atlanta Magazine has put this at the top of their list of their Five Points list of “What’s worth your while this month” which is very cool.

The majority of the work that will be shown is from 3 years worth of tilt-shift photography assignments that I have shot across the country.

There will be six 60X40 limited edition prints as well as eight 24X36 limited edition prints displayed at the gallery.  While these prints sell regularly and are part of many  private collections, this is the first time that the tilt-shift photographs will be exhibited as a series.

The Matre Gallery is located at:

65 Bennett Street  •  Atlanta, GA  30309  •  T 404.351.3620

On a separate note – there is one LAST spot open for this Tuesday’s workshop (see earlier posts) as someone had to pull out to take a job.  Pls post in the comments if you are interested.

Below are some thumbnails of a small selection of the images that will be shown at the gallery:
