“I feel like I’m in my second childhood,” says Susan Bridges, director and owner of Whitespace Gallery in Atlanta’s Inman Park neighborhood. “It’s been a time of creative activism.” Bridges opened Whitespace in September 2006 with photographer David Yoakley Mitchell’s Old South. Passion is what connects the gallery’s eclectic history with its contemporary present. The property was six apartments in the 1970s and has been transformed — with time, hard work and craziness — into Whitespace (formerly a garage), Whitespec (formerly a basement) and Shedspace (formerly a plant shed).
