Little Worlds: Artist Talk with Rob Amberg

  • Fall Line Press 675 Drewry Street Northeast, Suite 6 Atlanta, GA, 30306 United States (map)

Join us to see Rob Amberg's exhibition before it comes down and hear about his experience photographing in Madison County, North Carolina. Since moving there in 1973, writing and photographing the evolving culture and environment of this unique piece of Appalachia has been his lifetime project. 

Amberg is a Guggenhiem, NEH and NEA fellow. His first book, Sodom Laurel Album, is a cult classic now in its second printing and was published in 2002 by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke and the University of North Carolina Press. His second book from Madison County, The New Road: I-26 and the Footprints of Progress in Appalachia, was published in 2009 by the Center for American Places at Columbia College Chicago. To complete the trilogy, a third book is in progress. Fall Line has been in conversation with Amberg about this third book currently titled Little Worlds.
