For more information about the opening night reception visit, www.Facebook.com/OceanMarketAtlanta.

“The majority of my photographs depict energy that has been imprinted onto objects – a snapshot of words, emotions and actions that have been left behind.  Some are echoes of past grandeur that provoke a visual nostalgia. Others are vignettes of a suspended moment in time,” says Amy while discussing her work.

A self-taught Atlanta based photographer, Amy balances medicine and art on a daily basis.  She is a proud employee of Emory Healthcare and loves exploring the world through her patients and her lens.  Photography and ballet have been lifelong interests, which she has always studied alongside science and medicine.  Her favorite subject matter includes defunct objects and structures that embody the energy of the people who have touched them – her photography is an attempt to tell a moment of their story.  For information about Amy Simone and her photography, visit www.amysimonephotography.com.

Ocean Market is located at 489 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, Georgia, 30308 and is open for lunch Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  For more information and please visit www.oceanmarketatl.com.
