We will be holding down the gallery Friday July 18, 12 to 5PM and again Sat July 19, 12 to 5.
Come by, hang out, dig the pix. We'll talk photography, filmmaking, art, music, farming as art, filmmaking as farming. We'll drink coffee (Dancing Goats is less than 100 ft away), bring wine, we don't mind.
And who knows, maybe you'll get something for that empty wall.
We don't get to hang out with other photographers much.
When we're shooting, our days are spent with each other plus stylists (props, wardrobe, food), writers, field editors, photo editors, designers, property owners, clients, assistants, assistant assistants, location people, talent (adults, children, animals), wranglers (children, animals and their parents/owners). But other photographers? Not so much...
Oh, we might run into one picking up/dropping off gear at PPR but beyond that?
So the Wholesome Wave Georgia Farm To Frame event Friday evening was a real blast.
So many great photos; so many amazing photographers.
A group photo exhibit featuring 10 outstanding photographers on the subject of farming and farmers in Georgia will be at the Ponce City Market's Art Gallery in Atlanta during July.
We are honored to be included in this show and are contributing four never before seen images from our private collection taken during the filming of GROW!
On July 11th, a by invitation only Southern Chefs Potluck Pre-Party will be held in the gallery space to thank supporters of Wholesome Wave Georgia. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase the photography, with a percentage of the proceeds going to Wholesome Wave Georgia.
The exhibit will be up through July so the public can have the chance to view some extraordinary photographs and support Wholesome Wave Georgia by purchasing the works.
Ponce City Market's Art Gallery - 650 North Ave NE ATLANTA GA 30308 For information on attending this private event or to make an appointment to visit the gallery space please contact us at email@example.com
So how cool is this: so last night, after shooting all day, we grabbed a bite and headed over to the Highlands Civic Center to hear Lisa's husband, Dr. Chris Mowry, give a talk on "Coyote Population Dynamics and Behavior in Urbansuburban Habitats" for the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society.
... and headed for the North Carolina Premiere screening of TERRA FIRMA in Mt. Airy at the Andy Griffith Playhouse, (no, really!) Friday June 27th 2014 Q+A after the film with local farmer veteran Anna Mann and the filmmakers.
We were in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, getting the final interviews with Sonia Kendrick and B-roll footage for TERRA FIRMA. It was quite a week. Start with three days, add rain, add four more days, then throw in tornados, legal issues, flight delays, shake well...
Hanging out at Yeah! Burger in Virginia-Highlands ATL with Michael, Donn, Kate, from Georgia Organics, Danielle and Kate from Garnish & Gather, killing burgers, fries, beers, milkshakes, talking farmers, food, and trash. Good times.
R&R Reconnaissance Mission:
Undisclosed location on the coast where the sandy beach meets the sea.
Objective: Maybe discussing new projects; definitely getting the cabaña boys to set up the umbrella and lounges, ordering drinks from the tiki-bar on the beach, dreaming, napping, listening to the roar of the ocean, long walks at sunset...
We've got our work cut out but trust us- we will get it all done.
COUPLE OF THINGS- #1: Headed up to Mt. Vernon, Kentucky for the first hemp planting in Kentucky in a long time.
Although hemp cultivation has been included in the Farm Bill, (that would be the US Congress saying it's all right) opposition from various groups who think it's marijuana- you know: the devil's weed- are popping out of their holes. We will be there to photo document the planting and voice record interviews and interactions as they occur. (Does anyone really think the DEA is going to bust a bunch of veterans for planting a crop that the US Congress has approved of?) #rhetorical TERRA FIRMA IN KENTUCKY #2: On Saturday May 17th Growing Warriors will be hosting a free screening of TERRA FIRMA- A Celebration of Women Veterans at Renfro Valley. We have taken steps to insure that Sonia Kendrick from the film will be in attendance. Itinerary: May 15- Thursday: 6:30PM at the Rockcastle County Courthouse, 3rd floor Teleconference Center for a public forum on industrial Hemp with Mike Lewis and Craig Lee. May 16- Friday: 12noon planting - Location TBR (To be revealed)/Later: music, food, party May 17- Saturday: 1pm TERRA FIRMA screening at Renfro Valley/Later: music, food, party
Thank you Mike, Tia, Josh, Robert, Hank, Fred, Duane, Betty, oh gosh- KHGCA, and... just everyone involved in this historic event for putting this together.
Somewhere around Lake Keowee, west South Carolina with stylist/field editor Sandi Mohlmann... check back for updates/pix/ravings.
UPDATE: FRI MAY 9 2014 6:04PM We could not have done all this without Elle and Kate. Really. Thanks. Thank you so much Kris and Possum for opening your doors and yourselves to us. Sandi we love ya' for everything.
