Christy Bush | Americus | 2013

Join Jackson Fine Art in celebrating Familiar, a new monograph from Atlanta-born artist Christy Bush.

Celebrating thirty years of photographs — rock 'n' roll, fashion and coming of age in the South — this beautifully edited book features a foreword by Bush’s longtime friend, artist and musician Michael Stipe, and compiles some of the artist’s most compelling work to date. Bush will discuss her work and process, and books will be available for sale and signing.

A selection of works from Familiar (The Bitter Southerner Publishing, 2022) will be on view, as well as an installation of unique Polaroids. Christy’s exhibition opens September 16th in the gallery’s viewing room, alongside the gallery’s first exhibition of work by Tabitha Soren.

About the Artist

Christy Bush, an Atlanta-born photographer, cut her teeth in Athens in the early days of the town’s rock scene’s explosion into international renown. Her three decades of intimate and distinctive portraiture evokes the American South in all its truth and complexity. Her works range from depicting the universally recognized — Bush’s community of artists and musicians — to the particular — portraits of the photographer’s family and environment. Regardless of the subject, her pictures evince an aesthetic entirely her own and timelessly encapsulate adolescence, tracing a through-line from her own rebellious and romantic youth in the punk clubs of the 80’s and 90’s to present-day teenagers’ experience of the same sun-drenched boredom and restless hope. Informed by her work with Richard Pandiscio and Todd Eberle at Interview in the 90’s, Bush’s works recall a time before the proliferation of images became a social currency, when capturing a moment and holding it close at hand was only for a few.
