Jim Alexander is an American documentary photographer, photojournalist, activist, and teacher who is best known for being a “Participant Observer” and his photographs of human rights and black culture. In 1995, he was the first artist selected in the annual “Master Artist” program conducted by the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs. He would later be inducted into The HistoryMakers in 2006. He has photographed presidents, kings, professional athletes, movie stars, all kinds of Jazz musicians, and countless other subjects, places and things.
Carlos York has a focus on street photograph and finding magic in the everyday: “My style of street and documentary photography is about capturing the emotion or the essence of whatever it is I’m engaged in with my camera. Most people’s first memories of photography is bombarded with images of poverty or old buildings and such. When people look at my work, I want them to experience a range of ideas and emotions.” This is his first exhibit.
