70's Atlanta Show

Now you know Atlanta must have been one happenin' place in the 70's! See for yourself at the opening of The Atlanta 70's Show: a Retrospective of Boyd Lewis’ Photography of Atlanta at the Mason Murer Gallery, Friday September 14th at 7pm. About Boyd Lewis, a name you may be familiar with:

Boyd Lewis remembers the Atlanta of the 1970s in a photographic tour de Force at Mason Murer Fine Art. Lewis was a journalistic fixture in Atlanta from 1969-1997. Lewis was first hired in Atlanta as a reporter for The Atlanta Voice in 1969. He also worked as a freelance photographer at that time, landing photographs in Time, Newsweek and other major publications. Mr. Lewis became news editor of The Atlanta Inquirer in 1972. Here he documented the rise of Maynard Jackson, the election of Andrew Young to Congress, and the emergence of the African American Power Structure in Atlanta politics.

We've been working closely with Boyd and Mark at Mason Murer and I can tell you it's going to be a great show.
