Moca GA Pairs With Atlanta Celebrates Photography For A One Of  A Kind Show, Fast Forward // Rewind

On Friday, Moca GA in Atlanta had the opening reception for Fast Forward// Rewind. The showcase is a beautiful collection of photographers across the nation, who curator, Mary Wilson Stanley names, The Ones To Watch. The photographers come from various social and economic backgrounds, but have the common goal to produce art that speaks to the soul. The artists are telling stories, protesting and documenting through their own lenses — reflections of their individual journeys.

Shows such as this one are important because they bring awareness to issues that we all face. They expose us to different cultures and hardship. But most importantly encourages us that we are all the same. The smallest experiences can bring us closer than we could imagine.

See my favorites from the show below and be sure to see it all for yourself. Show ends Oct. 14, and don’t miss the panel discussion on Sept. 14.


“My selection pays homage to both the evolution of their practice, and the staying power of classic imagery and technique.”

-Mary Wilson Stanley
