Midtown Patch has just learned from the Reynolds Group, that as part of the Atlanta Celebrates Photography 2013 program, Ponce City Market invites neighbors and festival-goers to experience its own evolution through "a different lens."

Beginning Friday, October 4, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., local photographer Blake Burton will exhibit his gallery documenting the renovation of "Atlanta’s greatest adaptive reuse project in history." 

The gallery selection captures a photographic exploration of Ponce City Market, showcasing its authentic industrial character and historic structures. 

The event is free and open to the public, the exhibit will be open Tuesday through Sunday of each week, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., through Sunday, November 3.

The exhibit is located at 650 North Avenue NE in the service building at the corner of Glen Iris Drive. Guests may enter at the end of the building opposite from Dancing Goats. Parking is available in the parking deck behind the building, which is accessible from Glen Iris.

About Blake Burton and Ponce City Market:
Blake Burton shares a selection of his photographs documenting the renovation of Ponce City Market.  For over four years, photographer Blake Burton has been documenting Atlanta's greatest adaptive reuse project in history, Ponce City Market. Originally built in 1925 as a Sears, Roebuck & Company distribution center, the building was a hub of activity until closing its doors in 1989. In 1991, the City of Atlanta purchased the building and housed several departments while storing countless items amongst its 2 million square feet of space. Prior to Jamestown Properties purchasing the building in 2009, Blake began photographing its unique industrial character.
