    Birdman, Atlanta, 2008

    Lent by the artist, CS11.046

    Having worked as a classic black-and-white street photographer for most of his career, Atlanta-based photographer Robert "Chip" Simone embraced digital technology and color output in the year 2000, moving his experimentations with the medium into fresh and invigorating territory. This exhibition of 64 color photographs by Simone showcases the results of his recent explorations, presenting a tightly focused retrospective of the past decade of his work.

    The featured prints in this exhibition reflect Simone's long-term quest to "invest the print with the emotional resonance that I felt when I first saw the picture." Made largely in and around Atlanta and the photographer's home state of Massachusetts, the photographs showcase Simone's sensitive response to the visual rhythms of his environment. Simone describes his work as spontaneous and improvisational: "Like jazz music, the photographs resonate with the eccentric impulses and private curiosities that led me to them. These are the most intimate images I've ever shown, not for what they depict but for what they reveal."
