Jerry Siegel is a portrait and documentary photographer based in Atlanta. His most recent body of work titled "REVEAL" is about transformation. "We live in a world of costumes - presenting ourselves how we want others to perceive us," said Siegel. "REVEAL is an intimate look behind the scenes into the ways the illusion is created by Drag artists."
His first monograph, “Facing South: Portraits of Southern Artists,” was published by the University of Alabama Press in 2011. These portraits have been featured in solo exhibitions at six museums in Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana. Jerry Siegel's second monograph "Black Belt Color," features images from decades of documenting his hometown of Selma, Alabama, and the surrounding area. These images set forth the unique cultural landscape of that area, known as the Black Belt.
Also on display, a selection of works by Atlanta-based photographer John Dean and Dutch photographer Margriet Smulders. Contrasting the Dutch artistic tradition of sober formalism with the luxurious splendor of the Baroque, Smulders' painterly and often almost abstract floral still lifes look for beauty in disorder.
