Announcing the Country Roots Music Issue

For the 24th annual music issue, we return to the roots of country music and celebrate the essence of “countrified” sound.

Atlanta Signage: Looking Up

Artist: EWANG

Project: Atlanta Signage: Looking Up

Description: Photographer EWANG's initial inspiration for this Atlanta-based project is Matt Siber’s “Floating Logos” series. Siber photographed the landscape and signage across the Midwest, which he described as “corporate beacons [that] emit their message by looming over us in their glowing, plastic perfection.” 

Atlanta Signage: Looking Up uses Siber as inspiration to reimagine Atlanta’s ever-changing landscape. This ongoing photo series aims to give light to the seemingly overlooked places and signs in Atlanta that may not stand the test of time and gentrification. EWANG documents these landmarks in a way that demands the viewer to not only respect their surroundings, but remain cognizant of what Atlanta stands to lose.
