A Columbus State University student photographer has been selected as one of two Atlanta Photography Group Student Prize Winners, according to a news release.
Peyton Fulford, along with the other winner, Ben Lee, will have a solo show at the APG Gallery at the Tula Art Center in Atlanta from Aug. 24 through Sept. 23.
Fulford, a 22-year-old who will graduate from CSU this fall with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography, has already amassed an impressive artistic resume. Her work has appeared in two books, “Pics or It Didn’t Happen: Images Banned from Instagram” and “#girlgaze: How Girls See the World.”
Additionally, her work has been featured in i-D, Juxtapoz, Daily Mail and The British Journal of Photography. In 2015, she was named one of the “The 20 Best Photographers Under 20” by Complex Magazine.
Never miss a local story.
Fulford’s work for this exhibition will include pieces from her “Infinite Tenderness” series. She describes the works as exploring “the innocently intimate moments found in platonic relationships.” She also says that her images hope to “document the exploration of one’s body, sexuality, and/or gender that comes along with growing up and identifying oneself.”
The opening reception for the show will be Aug. 24 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Tula Art Center.
