Illume Lights Up Atlanta
The Red Bull Illume Exhibit Tour made its East Coast debut Wednesday in Atlanta, offering visitors an incredible “illumination” of the best in action and adventure sports photography.
Red Bull Illume set out to find the 50 best raw moments in action and adventure sports. Photography experts from around the world judged and hand-selected 50 images from the 7,200 submissions received from photographers in more than 90 countries.
The images already visited Aspen, Colo., Huntington Beach, Calif., and Portland, Ore., and they’ll dazzle crowds at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park through March 16. Twenty-five eight-foot glass and metal cubes light up the park each evening from dusk until 11 p.m., revealing the most dramatic compilation of action and adventure sports photography ever assembled.
“I’ve seen a lot of those, now I want most of those pictures for my new house,” said AJ Allmendinger, the Red Bull racer who took in the exhibit with fellow driver Scott Speed on Wednesday. “But I don’t think the whole Illume setup would fit in my basement.”
