It’s funny how you meet people. We were at the 2012 Southern Foodways Alliance Symposium and one minute Jeff and I are debating buying a large photo of a cow carcass split in two and the next minute we’ve made a friend, Mr. Landon Nordeman. He had just wrapped up a photo series in partnership with Saveur Magazine called “Slow & Low” featuring pitmasters and bbq which earned him the 2012 Visual Storytelling Award from the James Beard Foundation.
Next weekend, Landon, now our good friend, is premiering his newest exhibition, Out of Fashion, at the Hagedorn Foundation Gallery in Buckhead. He is quirky, funny and fresh and his work has been featured everywhere from the New York Times to National Geographic.
Fresh off his last project, he is bringing his experiences of photographing backstage at the 2014 International Fashion shows to Atlanta. We may sound biased but we think his exhibit is a must-see. Next Wednesday, January 28th, he’ll be giving a presentation at the gallery at 6 p.m to preview his exhibit. The opening reception will be the following day, January 29th at 7 p.m. so mark your calendars and go experience the genius that is Landon Nordeman.
