May 4th I attended another local photography reception here in Manassas, VA. When there’s a photography exhibit that’s in the same city that I live in I make a great effort to attend. If we don’t support each other who will?
The name of the exhibit is “The Dalton Gang”. The Dalton Gang are six photographers from the Exposure Group that’s located in Washington D.C. The Exposure Group African American Photographers Association is a membership driven non-profit professional organization open to photographers worldwide. They focus on photographic basics and encouragement to create new photographic works that reflect what we have gained from each other. Members include portrait artists, photojournalists, documentary photographers and fine artists who work as freelancers, are employed full-time as photographers, or who own their own studios. The mix of disciplines is the basis for energetic meetings and thought provoking discussions that range from photographic critiques to workshops on profitable business practices. To find out more about the Exposure Group: http://www.exposuregroup.org.
The Dalton Gang photographers are: Sandy Adams, Bonita F. Bing, Bruce Fagin (prior commitment) , Edward Savwoir, Michael Smith and George Dalton Tolbert IV. Each photographer decided to select 10 of his or her favorite photographs for the exhibit. As always I enjoy talking with photographers about their work, techniques or just plain photography. What I really enjoyed was talking to the ones that actually print their own work. There’s nothing like having total control of your work.
The Dalton Gang Exhibit is from May 2 – June 8. It’s at the Center for the Arts of Greater Manassas/Prince William County, VA. If you’re close check it out!
And remember…SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHERS 😉
HAPPY SHOOTING!! 🙂 🙂
