Please join us for the Opening Night of "After SELMA", a historic photography exhibition, in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography.

WINNER: "Top 50 Emerging Artists" by LensCulture Magazine

The year 2015 marks the fifty-year fight for human and civil rights in America. Yet, what was supposed to be a time of celebration turned into one of uprising across the nation. Half a century later, America is left with the question, "After Selma, where are we now?"

Photographer Joshua McFadden is a visual storyteller, whose interest in social justice advances human and civil rights in America through the narrative of his series, "After Selma". His work illuminates similarities between the civil rights movement of the 1960s and the demonstrations of the new millennium. McFadden's work depicts the passion, anger and sadness of recent events in America, while at the same time showing the hope, strength and unity of a nation.

The exhibition will display framed photographs of intimate moments from the 50th anniversary of the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. There will also be a night of projections and an open forum with the artist that will give a look into McFadden's multimedia work.
