RUSTY MILLER, The Compassionate Eye in Forgotten Atlanta

Thursday June 14, 2018 06:00 PM EDT
Cost: Free,

From the venue:


The City of Atlanta Gallery 72 is honored to present the first solo exhibition of Rusty Miller's vintage and later photographs of Atlanta, circa 1960s to 1970s, in "The Compassionate Eye in Forgotten Atlanta." The exhibition, in collaboration with curator Susan Todd-Raque, features a selection of 50 photographs, portraying the people in various communities now gone or changed forever.


Russell Stough Miller (1933-1992) grew up in Atlanta and decided he wanted to be a commercial photographer rather than work in the family printing business. Rusty Miller followed his personal passion on the weekends by documenting the people who lived in Old Fourth Ward, Vine City, Summerhill, Washington-Rawson and Buttermilk Bottoms, where there were unpaved streets, electricity was rare and life went on as usual, outside of the turmoil during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement activities in downtown Atlanta.
