Dodge & Burn is a series of photo essays documenting local culture with a focus on artful imagery, movement, and light.
In conjunction with BURNAWAY’s “Ruins and Rebirth” Third Annual Fundraiser on Saturday, this week’s Dodge & Burn features picks from over the last year of the column. These highlights illustrate our city’s capacity for change—from performance pieces that completely transform a desolate space into a land of mystery, to the revitalization around The Goat Farm Arts Center, to simple everyday moments that speak volumes about life—these photographs capture that energy and history of Atlanta. Enjoy!
Dodge & Burn will be taking a small break during the month of September to recharge our photographic batteries. Expect more in the coming months from this column including new photographers, and watch our Flickr account for regular updates!
