The time has come for the Festival of the Photograph [includes photo gallery]

The time has come for the Festival of the Photograph to shake this town like a Polaroid picture! While a few galleries have already opened corresponding exhibits (pick up C-VILLE Weekly, check out Galleries & Exhibitions, see page 40), the festival itself gets underway with a pair of film screenings by featured artists Sally Mann and Eugene Richards, a couple large-scale slideshows at picturesque (get it?) spots around town and in-depth conversations between National Public Radio’s Alex Chadwick and guests of honor Mann, Richards and William Albert Allard. June 7-9. Festival passes from $50-450. See the calendar for complete event listings, or visit
