Art Print Notes:
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.
Wonder what past print buyers think?
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I got my print today, thank-you so much.

I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.

I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!

I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
