Georgia photography

Chip Simone knows photography, and he is an authority on Georgia photographers in particular. Simone curated the first ever state-wide survey of contemporary photography for the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia. That exhibit closes this weekend, and the reviews have been glowing.

In an interview with Lois Reitzes on “City Lights,” Simone said that he did not want to limit the show to the traditional images of the rural and historic South – think photos of weathered barns, rusted pick-up trucks, fields of cotton and lots of kudzu.

Tony Taylor started practicing his guitar on Stone Mountain more than 20 years ago. One of his favorite singers is Adele.
