This particular picture illustrates the ever-changing skyline over the Buckhead district in Atlanta. As I prepared to leave the city, I took one last stroll through the area and was really in some ways shocked by how much the urban landscape had blossomed in the decade I was there. Atlanta seems to grow by leaps and bounds. Ever higher and bigger seems to be the unofficial motto for the whole metro area.
The mammoth modern skyscraper so prominent in this print, previously the Mansion On Peachtree is now the Mandarin Oriental. In the foreground of this photo is the Buckhead Marta Station. There’s very nearly a stair-step effect going from the foreground leading our eyes to that monumental building.
And on that last walk in 2009, I was given a gift of really striking skies that afternoon. Those looming clouds over Buckhead really frame this big skyscraper and there’s just a strong feeling of being in the heart of a city with all the competing architectural elements in this photo.
That intense urban feel is what led me to name this print Urbania – it just seemed a very fitting title.
