New Conversation Series at the Intersection of Atlanta’s Past and Future
Emory University’s archives division is inviting speakers from Atlanta’s arts, food, literary and other cultural worlds to take part in a new series. Atlanta Intersections is intended “to spur new conversations about the city of Atlanta, the South, and beyond.”
Recently, John Lemley sat down with the curator of the talks and its first speaker. Randy Gue is curator of Emory’s Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library. Chip Simone has been photographing the streets and people of the Atlanta since 1972. Simone’s talk kicks things off Tuesday, March 18.
John began the conversation by asking Randy what sparked the idea for the talks.
And here’s an extended version of this conversation, in which Chip Simone talks more about the subject of his Atlanta Intersections talk, “Photography: The Beautiful Lie.”
