Bill Yates’ #sweetheartrollerskatingrink from Fall Line Press on Kickstarter

It's great to see good people in the Atlanta photo community come together for a project, and that's what's happened with our building-mates Fall Line Press and Bill Yates' project "Sweetheart Roller Skating Rink."

The book project has a kickstarter, and they're looking to raise $40k before May 5th. Help them meet their goal!

"Bill Yates, an outstanding photographer, recently unearthed a collection of 800 vintage prints and film negatives he shot back in 1972. I can tell you that looking at them feels like stepping into a time machine. He had stumbled upon the Sweetheart Roller Skating Rink outside of Tampa, FL when he was 25 years old, and spent almost every weekend there for 6 months with his medium format twin lens camera, documenting a moment in time that lots of folks remember... suburbia or small town America, roller rinks and hangouts where we’d escape, listen to music, have fun with friends, let loose, and grow up. It’s a visual time capsule that is truly a sight to behold. "
