Following the success of the inaugural Photo Book Fair in 2009, ACP continues to provide an opportunity for photographers who have published books (on their own or with publishers) to show, discuss and sell their books to the public.

A targeted lecture series that allows expansion into programs that offer career, technical or art historical perspectives to benefit photographers and collectors of all levels.

ACP’s Public Art Project is significant in its ability to reach beyond the audience of traditional art venues and to expand the way audiences consider photography, exhibited in various locations throughout Atlanta.

Lectures, artists talks, book signings, panel discussions and photo shoots have been included in these collaborations.
