About This Image

Pictured here is the beautiful and historic Fox Theater, a staple on Peachtree Street, the main artery through Atlanta. The Fabulous Fox was built in the late 1920’s in an era when movie theaters were still relatively new. Going to the movies then was considered a real treat and the architecture of the old movie palaces like the Fabulous Fox reflected it. It’s called “Eclectic architecture” simply because it’s an eclectic blend of far flung influences. But all this was nearly lost when the Fox theater was threatened with demolition in the 1970’s. While many of the other grand movie palaces of Atlanta were lost, the Fox Theater was saved by determined citizens and continues to draw audiences today.

These days, it’s hard to believe the Fox was ever threatened with demolition. For those of us who moved to the area later, the Fox Theater had taken on an unquestionable landmark status, a cultural icon. When I started my series of local landmarks around the Atlanta area, the Fox was absolutely the first on the list.

Yet, this particular print is one of the last in my Atlanta Icon series. I literally took this photo of the old Fox the last week I lived in Atlanta before moving on to follow other dreams. When I look at this photo, it definitely reminds me of my old life in Atlanta.

This picture of the Fox Theater was taken with my fisheye lens as I wanted to try for something a little different and I really liked the result in this application. The result is a fun quirky image that it almost seems one could step into. It’s interesting that others have told me the same thing about this as well as my other fisheye photos.

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
