February is a bit of an anniversary for us here at ATL Photo Night — it will mark our 25th event! To celebrate this milestone, we've got something real special lined up. Way back in the summer of 2016, Raymond McCrea Jones was our very first guest. So it only seems fitting that the second half of the duo that created ATL Photo Night would be the one to deliver our anniversary edition. The one and only Kevin D. Liles will be our very special guest artist for February.

An independent photographer based in Atlanta, Kevin has a special interest in telling Southern stories. He loves to work at the margins of religion, sports, and politics — arenas where so many of our differences (and similarities) converge. A native Georgian who began his career as a reporter, he travels the Southeast telling important stories in his own backyard.

Kevin has photographed hundreds of assignments for national outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio, and Sports Illustrated. He also serves as the team photographer for the Atlanta Braves. Other clients include Atlanta Magazine, ESPN, the NBA, The Players' Tribune, and The Intercept.

As always, ATL Photo Night is free and open to all.
