A few weekends ago I traveled south to rural Georgia to attend the Slow Exposures photo exhibit. I’ve been going since 2013 and now it is a reunion of sorts with all the friends I have made over the year. This year I was excited to be a part of a pop-up at the show, a small solo or group exhibit at various venues around the town.
I was part of a group of four encaustic artists which we named The Hive.
We were in a small building used as an organic marketplace during the week. We were excited to offer demos of the photo encaustic method, adding encaustic medium (beeswax and resin) to our images.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time to go out and shoot but took advantage of the time I had. Here’s a few from right out the door of our accommodations.
I also spent a little bit of time roaming around the tiny town of Gay.
My quest for a cow portrait didn’t go as planned but this beauty stood and posed for me for several minutes.
As always, the weekend culminated in the Saturday Night dinner. Great food, wine, conversations and some incredible cakes.
Another Slow E is in the books. I’m always on the lookout for images that I consider “Slow worthy” and have already begun to stockpile some in my Slow folder with hopes of getting into the show next year.
