Jeffrey Morrison descends into the buried and nearly-forgotten heart of Atlanta with a meticulously researched and fast-paced historical narrative coupled with stunning, noirish photographs and archival images that illuminate a city in flux. Atlanta has famously demolished some of its most historic buildings as it aggressively strives to be a modern, international city. As this underworld vanishes in the name of progress, Atlanta Underground is a must-read for history buffs, city planners and guardians of history now and in the future.
– Collin Kelley, Editor of Atlanta INtown
Through beautiful photography, expert narrative, and well-researched historical references, Morrison investigates the cultural crevices of Atlanta’s unexpected Underground – a perfectly artificial connotation that further muddies the city’s identity. Underground may not really be below the ground plane, but as both a physical and social infrastructure, it’s a defining force under Atlanta.
