Three photography exhibitions open at Jackson Fine Art today - George Georgiou's Fault Lines/Turkey/East/West, Michael Kenna's Works from 2011 - 2012, and Andrew Moore's New Works from Cuba. Taken together, the exhibitions span much of the globe - Kenna adds images of South Korea, Japan, Thailand, and France to Gerogiou's Turkey and Moore's Cuba. All three will run through April 13.

Sergei Isaenko's photo thesis Echoes of the Collapse closes today at the Dewberry Gallery at SCAD. The exhibition examines immigration, displacement, and reckoning through intimate collaboration between Isaenko and his family. Admission is free.

Between visits to the Dewberry Gallery and Whitespace, take a look at The South's Next Wave: Design Challenge today for as little or as much as you want - it's "pay as you wish" day at MODA.
