January 20 – March 10, 2015 –

In January 2014 Decatur native and photographer, Tillman Crane lead a group of photography enthusiasts through visual treasure troves of North Alabama. From industrial Birmingham to the backwaters of the Tennessee River, these photographers found beauty in the still, the rusted, and the silent shadows of Alabama’s past.

The exhibit includes fifty photographic works by seventeen photographers from eleven states. Locations included Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, a historic building on Bank Street in Decatur, Alabama, and structures and backwater marshes in Mooresville, Alabama.

In conjunction with the beginning of the exhibit, Mr. Crane will host a third Alabama photography workshop, Spirit of Structure: Alabama Revisited, with different Decatur places waiting to be captured in film or pixels. A video slideshow of new images will be added to the exhibit at the conclusion of this year’s workshow on Friday, January 23rd and continue to be on display for the remainder of the exhibit.
