Atlanta Celebrates Photography with The Porfolio Center Exhibiting "Faces of Atlanta"

Friends, if you are in the Atlanta area, come and check out this photography exhibit I am in! ATTN: TIME CHANGE! SHOW NOW OPENS WEDNESDAY, 7:00 PM OCTOBER 20th.

For the exhibit, I photographed refugee women of Atlanta who are being resettled by the International Rescue Committee. Atlanta's refugee population is proportionally the largest refugee population in the country. More than 2 million refugees have arrived in the US since the Refugee Act of 1980, with 50,000 settling in Atlanta and becoming productive members of our community. These are just a few of the lovely faces that make up our increasingly multicultural, diverse, and vibrant city! You can see more from this series on my flickr!
