Picture Tallahassee: Where We Live, Work & Play




From the advent of photography, practitioners of the art form have held an affinity for architecture. Evidence of this exists from 1826 in the earliest surviving photograph of a real-world scene. French inventor, Joseph Nicéphore Niépce developed a process for recording light and fixing it as an image on paper. His first composition was a view of city buildings taken from the window of his studio. Nearly 200 years have passed and in that time, architecture and photography have continued to evolve and converge, reflecting our culture and our shared humanity.

In Tallahassee, architecture has been part of the landscape for thousands of years, beginning with indigenous peoples, followed by the early Spanish settlers. Throughout our community and in the surrounding areas stand both historic and modern examples of architecture that demonstrate a commonality across eras. The Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida) invites local photographers to capture the positive effect that architectural design has on our community.

Picture Tallahassee: Where We Live, Work & Play will celebrate community design as an art form. Some photographers may choose to convey the impressive weight of concrete and steel, while others might seek to capture the delicacy of nature reflected in glass. By exhibiting artful images of the structures where we live, work, and play, AIA Florida hopes to demonstrate that physical structures have the power to summon an emotional connection in people.

This exhibition opportunity is presented by AIA Florida, and is made possible through the partnership of the Council on Culture & Arts (COCA) with additional support from the Florida Foundation for Architecture and AIA Tallahassee.
