Mary Stanley Studio presents a solo exhibition of Bill Yates’ Sweetheart Rolling Skating Rink at Hathaway Gallery in Atlanta. The photographer’s iconic series of gelatin silver photographs were shot in 1972-1973 and for nearly 40 years, the project lay untouched in a box. At his family’s urging, Yates began to show the work and was met with immediate success, becoming a top 50 winner 2013 of PhotoLucida Critical Mass Award. The series is travelling to Atlanta from his recent solo exhibition at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, where it was seen by more than 25,000 museum visitors.
