Current Artists

This Fall the MacMillan Law Library hosts the artwork of 3 local photographers.

Lynn Farmer, a photographer since she was nine years old, lives in Decatur, Georgia. She taught high school English for 35 years and holds a Ph.D. in literature from Emory University. She has traveled widely, awed by the beauty and surprise along the way and joyfully taking photographs. She enjoys photographing formal and informal portraits, landscapes, patterns in architecture and the natural world, human nature in action and repose, and visual paradox. In addition to being a photographer, Lynn is a poet and a singer.

Lynn’s work has been published in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Village Writer Magazine, Michael Carlos Museum News, and the DeKalb News-Sun, among others. Her photography has illustrated a dissertation and a medical textbook and has appeared as work on various websites. Lynn has received a number of photography awards, including four prizes in the Wolf Camera Southeastern Photography Awards; one prize in the AJC Travel Photography Contest; and two prizes in the Atlanta Audubon Society Photography Exhibition. She has also exhibited her photography locally at Stone Mountain Yellow Daisy Festival; Oakhurst Community Arts Festival; Glory Be! Salon; Tucker, Salem-Panola, and Decatur Public Libraries; Mercer University Library; Emory Law School Library; Atlanta Fulton County Library; and Clarkston Community Center.

Lynn’s part of the current exhibit features “Bikes of the World.” Some of the photographs were taken in the U.S.— New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, DC—and others in the cities of Cuba, Belize, Morocco, Spain, France, Italy, Austria, and Germany.

Brenda Constan currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia, and is a retired high school English teacher.  She has been exhibiting her photos in the Atlanta area for several years and has published a few photos in magazines and brochures. Brenda has been taking photographs since childhood when her grandfather gave her his Brownie box camera. As a teenager and college student, she lived in Louisiana, where she often returns to record images of  musicians and, of course, food.  Before moving to Atlanta, she also lived in Vermont, where she developed interests in hiking, canoeing, and x-country skiing and began using her camera to document the beauty of the changing seasons.  Today, she depends on her camera not so much as an artistic tool but as a way to record images of the people she meets and the scenery and wildlife she encounters during her travels and along the trail. The photographs in this exhibit are of people from New Zealand, Czech Republic, Switzerland, England, and the United States.
