Blake Burton (b. 1984) is an architect and photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia. His project Ponce City Market has offered rare, behind the scenes views of one of the largest adaptive reuse projects in the United States. Spanning six years, the project documents the transition from monumental empty edifice on the brink of ruin, to a world class destination teeming with activity. Burton's first book Ponce City Market: The Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of Atlanta's Largest Building will be produced by Schiffer Publishing. Featuring a Foreword by renowned architectural historian Robert M. Craig, and an essay by Sears historian Jerry Hancock, the book is anticipated for release in Spring 2018.
