Donna Rosser recently received notice that two of her photos will be part of the 2009 Slow Exposures exhibit in Pike County, Ga. Slow Exposures is a juried photography exhibition celebrating the rural south. One hundred thirty-three photographers submitted 640 photos. Ninety-three photos were chosen for the show – Rosser has two in the West Central Georgia category.

Last year Rosser entered Slow Exposures for the first time and was thrilled to have two photos in the show. This year was her second time entering and again she has two photos in the exhibit. Both of the photos in the 2009 show were taken last September when she was driving to Concord for the events of Slow Exposures 2008. As she passed a rural, roadside cemetery she was struck by the primitive false crypts there. Adding to the scene was tall grass. She took several photos of the crypts that day including “False Crypt” seen above.

The other photo in the show is “Morning After.” This photo was taken in the Strickland Building in Concord, Ga. The night before, the Slow Exposures black-tie event was in this room. This photo shows the empty room the day after.

This past April, Rosser directed Nature, Undisturbed at Dogwood Gallery and Framer in Tyrone. Nature Undisturbed is a juried photography exhibit and sale benefiting Southern Conservation Trust. The event was such a success; Rosser is beginning work now on Nature, Undisturbed 2010.

In April 2006, Rosser formed the Fayette Photo Club. The group meets twice a month in Peachtree City. She teaches photography and photo editing at Dogwood Gallery in Tyrone and for Clayton State University’s continuing education program. Rosser also writes a popular blog about her photography; http://thebarefootphotographer.blogspot.com.
