The New Talents

They play by their own rules. They aren’t afraid to take risks—creatively, professionally, sometimes personally. And because of their ingenuity, these multi-talented individuals are changing Atlanta, be it our interiors, our architecture, our environment—even our sense of community. Here, in AH&L’s third-annual salute to the city’s next generation of movers and shakers, are 20 talents under age 40 (and in no particular order) who remain constants on our radar screens.

Michelle Bradley, Staffan Svenson, Jessica Garcia, Andrew Crawford, Cathleen Cooke, Shon Parker, Graham Pittman, Jennifer Dwyer, Kristofer Laméy, Katriesa Raines, Jamie McPherson, Andrew Cogar, Amy Miller, Jack Poles, Adam Ellis, Emmy Otto Cherry, June Chamberlain, John Gidding, Matthew Klyn and Greg Levine.
