Grace exhibit, book channel the American scene
Long-time photojournalist Arthur Grace is based in Los Angeles, but Atlanta must be starting to feel like a second home right about now.
“Choose Me: Arthur Grace’s Portraits of a Presidential Race,” a selection of his pictures taken for Newsweek magazine during the 1988 campaign, is on view at the High Museum of Art through Jan. 6.
Meanwhile, Fall Line Press, the Atlanta-based photography publisher/bookstore/reading room, has just released its second volume, Grace’s “America 101” ($58.50).
In his essay for the book containing 101 career-spanning black and white photographs, High Museum of Art photography curator Brett Abbott writes that it “could not be more relevant as a critical reflection and historical lesson on America’s cultural preoccupations over the past four decades”
Fall Line is in TULA Arts Center, 75 Bennett St., Suite B1, Atlanta.
