Art Print Description:

Pictured here is a a gritty black and white image of Atlanta’s infamous Krog Street Tunnel, near the historic Cabbagetown mill village.

The Krog Street Tunnel is a nearly century old and rather long railroad underpass. The almost labyrinthine tunnel beneath the tracks has become home to an ever-evolving display of graffiti. Once you look past the grit, though, it’s apparent that the Krog Street Tunnel is an underworld art gallery. As you can see, it’s literally packed with the work of (largely unknown) artists.

When a group of photographer friends mentioned going there, I jumped at the chance. I have to admit that it was a very interesting place to photograph. In a place where the sun never shines, the glow of artificial lighting is very much the story. An added dimension is the knowledge that the graffiti is ever-changing. A photo a week later would be different, never mind years later. It’s an art canvas that is never the same twice.

I never quite decided whether to count this particular photo in my Atlanta landmarks print series or not. This was a series of Atlanta’s iconic places that I was working on while I lived there. Certainly among the right groups in Atlanta, Krog Street is well known, but outside of the urban core of Atlanta, I’m not sure Krog Street Tunnel would have the same cachet?

Granted this is one of those gritty urban black and white prints that has appeal beyond people who have simply seen it in person. Based on past print sales, I’m pretty sure at least some portion of its buyers couldn’t find it on a map but simply loved the dramatic feel to this image.
