Event

Still Hungry in America......Not If We Can Help It!
This is your opportunity to attend the premier showing of Al Clayton's photograph series, Bum Raps.  In 1986, Al, in collaboration with renowned author William Hedgepeth, took a series of stunning studio portraits of Atlantans who were homeless at the time, and, while they were at it, asked them to write a short paragraph about their lives.  You will be moved.  

Al Clayton was famous for his photos that made America think - about poverty, hunger, war....but also about Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and even Ru Paul.  

A recent re-release of the book, Still Hungry in America, featuring Al's photos of real life in the Mississippi Delta and Eastern Kentucky Appalachia during the 1960s is the backdrop for this event.  Many of his works will be on display in the gallery and a very limited selection of numbered prints of four of his favorite photos will be available for purchase.  You can also purchase a copy of the re-released edition of Still Hungry in America.    

One of the men featured in Bum Raps, a fellow named Joe, was a regular at Clifton Night Shelter many years ago....and his legacy lives on.  Thousands of men who followed in Joe's footsteps have benefited from the life-changing programs offered at Clifton.  

Come celebrate transformation and great photography!  This event benefits Clifton Sanctuary Ministries and the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
