Curator and Scene photo contest judge Susan Sherrick and fashion journalist and Nash-Up panelist Libby Callaway have just announced their newest project: Joint. It's a series of pop-up happenings that's taking off alongside Nashville's fashion week, and will feature photographs by a mixture of internationally recognized photographers and local up-and-comers. Every Joint project will have a different theme, but this first one will be tough to beat — fashion photography has a long, glamorous history, and many photographers who are known for their work in fashion also have other subjects under their belt (see above photo of Woody Allen by Irving Penn).
Photographers include Richard Avedon, Lee Friedlander, Horst P. Horst, Mikael Kennedy, William Klein, Saul Leiter, Vivian Maier, Sarah Moon, Irving Penn, Heidi Ross, Josef Sudek, Joshua Black Wilkins and Josh Wool.
The exhibition will be up for one weekend only — Friday, April 5-Sunday, April 7 — at 1107 Caruthers Ave. Look for reports from the scene on Country Life, and find more information about Joint at thisisthejoint.com
