More than 900 feet of photography has come to the Atlanta Beltline.

Currently installed along the Eastside Trail through November, “The Fence” is a juried exhibit featuring works from 40 international photographers. Now in its third year, it’s displaying simultaneously in Boston (at Rose F. Kennedy Greenway) and Brooklyn (at Brooklyn Bridge Park). But this is the first time “The Fence” has come to Atlanta, thanks in part to a partnership between Atlanta Celebrates Photography and United Photo Industries of NY.

Elan Buchen (Atlanta BeltLine Project Coordinator for Art and Design) and Amy Miller (Atlanta Celebrates Photography Executive Director) both served as jurors on the photographic installation. It’s part of the overall Art on the Atlanta Beltline exhibition, which kicked off Sept. 6 and features works from more than 100 visual and performing artists.

For a full preview of the photographers included and their works, check out “The Fence” online. If you’re trying to catch it IRL, the exhibit is located on the Eastside Trail between Kevin Rathbun Steak (154 Krog Street) and North Highland Ave., according to Jenny Odom of the Atlanta Beltline.
