Sam Dobrow presents several of his cornerstone photographs from his 110+ page photobook, “Orient Expression: A Photographer’s Journey to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam”. Dobrow explains how his journey to Indochina evolved from a childhood fear of dying in The Vietnam War to becoming a passive observer of an ancient civilization that overcame war and embraced altruism. Dobrow’s works include HDR images, panoramas, and infrared photographs all brought together with a signature post processing style.

Atlanta Celebrates Photography is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to the cultivation of the photographic arts and the enrichment of the Atlanta art community. ACP helps make Atlanta a leading center for the world’s fastest growing art form by creating experiences that enrich, inspire and transform. In addition to year-round programs, ACP produces the largest annual community-oriented photo festival in the United States. ACP provides experiences that engage and enrich diverse audiences utilizing the power of photography as a tool for sharing experiences, learning about our world, and creative self-expression.

Faced with the challenges of organizing a large festival in the era of COVID-19, ACP turned their attention to technology and created a virtual festival for 2020. The majority of events are online with a few socially-distanced in-person events at local venues and galleries. Please visit the ACP website to participate in a month-long online festival of events.
