Guy Mendes at {Poem 88} in ATL



Guy Mendes’ portrait photographs goes on display at {Poem 88} next week in Atlanta, GA.

From the showcard:

Guy Mendes 40/40 traces Mendes’ career through portraits and texts, guiding the viewer through moments in the lives of forty people who have crossed paths with the artist along his own meandering course. From the streets of New Orleans to the hills of Kentucky, Guy Mendes has spent the past forty years rambling around the South, twisting and pulling light through his lens and giving us the people and places we all recognize but were never able to see.

Phillip March Jones, founder and director of Institute 193 in Lexington, KY and director of the Souls Grown Deep Foundation, published the book that accompanies the exhibition in 2011.”
