In conjunction with the Atlanta Photography Group exhibition Mary Stanley Selects my photograph was selected by Annette Cone Skelton for inclusion into the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia's permanent collection.
That means -
My photograph is going to be in a museum!
Mary Staley (below) selected photographs from over 600 submissions for this show. Then, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia selected 2 photographs from the show to go into their musuem. Today, Mary Stanley talked about why she selected each photograph for the show. She likes simplicity, geometric lines, folk art, decor, COLOR, cars and portraits that make her want to know more about the person. She said she liked the edginess of the girl in my photo and the simplicity of the background.
This is all very encouraging to me, and I will be back downtown on Monday!
