2022: The year in photos

Cuisine Home + Garden People Style The Arts Travel

November 30, 2022

We might remember 2022 as a reboot — the year of getting back out there. We gave ourselves permission to start dining out again, to travel again, to dress up again. The last few years have also been a period of profound creativity — for interior designers, chefs and artists. At SouthPark, we’re thrilled to be able to work with some of the best photographers in the city and region. Here, we highlight some of their work and share some of our favorite images from the last year.
