The Joy of Farming

Posted by on Aug 17, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments
This September, Griffin photographer, Malgorzata Florkowska, presents a collection of her original photographs at J. Michaels, 130 South Hill Street, to complement the annual SlowExposures juried exhibition that celebrates photography of the rural south.

A native of Poland, Malgosia (to her numerous friends) began pursuing her interest in photography six years ago when her new life in the South exposed her to Georgia’s red clay and rural farming community.

In 2007, her photograph “Ties that Bind,” won First Place in SlowExposures. In 2008 she curated “Horsing Around….,” an equine related photography exhibition. A year later, she published her first photography book, “The Joy of Farming.” In 2009, she was a juror for “Puppy Love” and this year her “Forgotten Luxury” has been accepted into the 2010 SlowExposures exhibition.

“Last April, I published “The Joy of Farming.” In the book, I selected over sixty photographs of rural Georgia including people, animals, landscapes and old agricultural structures and equipment.

I have chosen twenty-four images from that book to show at J. Michael’s next month. All photographs are in black and white and will be for sale at the frameshop in historic downtown Griffin.

This Fall marks the eighth year of SlowExposures — September 17th through September 26th, 2010. The free photo exhibition is held annually at the R. L. Strickland Building in Concord, Georgia.
