Transparencies Billboards reference “place” as timestamps and landmarks. Throughout the fall, three different sets of imagery will be featured on these five billboards. The first will feature photographs of blank billboards. Then the billboards will “vanish” revealing the site obscured by these structures. In the third, images of General Sherman’s eyes will stare down from the facades as a reminder of the history of Atlanta. Major funding for Apparitions comes from Atlanta Celebrates Photography.
