Out There Atlanta has switched its focus to Southern transplants living in the New York area. In these interviews, we reestablish connections with these artists and talk about their backgrounds, artistic journeys, what brought them to the South, and what took them away. This podcast features an interview with Beau Torres. Born and raised in Georgia, Torres graduated from Georgia State University last spring with a BFA in photography and is currently in the MFA program at the International Center of Photography in New York City. Topics include: a specialized art school versus a liberal arts environment, utilizing opportunities in Atlanta, making the move to New York City, projects in progress, and aspirations to work with The Impossible ProjectNew 55, and 20×24 studio.
