BOOK LAUNCH | Jack Carnell: True Places

October 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for an evening with photographer Jack Carnell and Fall Line Press. Carnell will talk about his work and the release of his new book True Places, published by our friends at Fall Line.

Carnell spent ten years making repeat visits to Georgia. The photographs in this book grew out of his experience of the South and the “true places” that captured his imagination.

It is not down in any map; true places never are.
– Herman Melville
