Currently Affecting Forgotten Atlanta.
Run The Jewels…… Atlanta's own Killer Mike in Stankonia Studios with his large Forgotten Atlanta print. A hometown hero I'm glad owns a few pieces of Forgotten Atlanta.
"Since 2009, Proph Bundy’s Forgotten Atlanta series has put a lens to the harsher realities of Atlanta’s urban decay. Documenting the city’s abandoned public housing buildings, foreclosed homes, and businesses long dead, the Roxbury, Mass.-born, ATL-dwelling Bundy says something bigger about the current state of oft-neglected communities in the city. More than the buildings, the people who once inhabited these ghost structures are the most significant. Whether they’re include...d in the photo or not, it’s those residents that the photographer says are “the most important part of the picture.”" via Creative Loafing Atlanta BEST OF ATL 2015.
What an honor it is to be noticed in this fashion. I have a lot of work that needs to be shared, and while this kind of acknowledgement was completely unexpected, it has lit a fire under me to post more work. Thanks for anyone who has liked this page and followed my work over the years. Special Thanks to CL_ATL for always having impeccable taste (not in regards to me, just in general)
This is what I'm talking about!!! I love this body of work. In my travels and exploration of Forgotten Atlanta, it has always been a goal of mine to showcase the condition and environment without putting a face to it... to allow the viewer to imagine the stories behind the buildings and neighborhoods... but photographer Brent Walker has taken the polar opposite approach in capturing the people and their direct stories, in his work The Hidden South. A big salute to you Brent. This is well done, and a great representation of Forgotten Atlanta.
