Sheila Pree Bright is an award-winning fine art photographer based in Atlanta Georgia.

“The work by Atlanta-based photographer Sheila Pree Bright could not be more relevant today. Her book #1960Now examines the parallels and differences between the civil rights movement in the 1960s and the ongoing protests for racial equality and justice, thoughtfully pairing images of young activists with the founders of movements from half a century earlier, while also capturing the energy of the early years of the Black Lives Matter protests in reportage.”
