From The Fox Theatre to The Varsity, from The Beltline to Buckhead, and from today's thriving Ponce City Market to vintage scenes of the bustling city streets of Downtown Atlanta, Plaid Columns captures our iconic city with great variety.
With a playful charm and layers of intrigue, Plaid Columns brings history forward in these "renovations" of vintage imagery. Evan Jones' brilliant use of color is on full display in this series.
Rob Matre was born in Jacksonville, Florida, and raised in the Southwest Georgia city of Albany, not far from The Gulf of Mexico. The ocean, and the peace of mind it encourages, remains a constant influence and source of inspiration.
Long before #classicgeorgia became an instagram hashtag sensation and inspired an apparel brand, Rob Matre was thoroughly documenting The Empire State of the South through his Classic Georgia photography series. The resulting photographs, along with vintage images of our great state, find new energy in this series.
The love of sport, from ball games to hunting and fishing, defines much of our lives. Plaid Columns celebrates sport, connecting the viewer not only to their athletic heroes and favorite teams, but also capturing the very essence of the games we know and love as both participants and spectators.
