Work in Progress is a dramatic presentation of Peter Essick's four-year project oflow-level aerial photographs of construction sites in the Atlanta Metro area.Essick said about his work, "It wasn't until I started flying a drone that I realizedconstruction sites offered so many different visual perspectives. The textures andcolors of human-altered landscapes are endlessly fascinating. Seeing andphotographing this landscape from the air has opened up for me new ways ofcreative expression. Construction sites change by the day, and the light andexposure are never the same. Wood, steel, and concrete relate to each other ininfinite varieties of order and disorder." Work in Progress is a unique vision of a human-altered landscape.
