Piece description from the artist
The red neon sign on the Domino Sugars factory is the classic calling card of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. In operation for over 90 years, the plant continues to produce refined sugar products to this day. The last of the industrial processing plants in the Inner Harbor, the factory is now joined by service sector giants like Legg Mason, TransAmerica and Morgan Stanley.
Fed by cargo ships of raw material from foreign lands, located adjacent to Tide Point and across from Fells Point, the working factory stands as an iconic landmark in the Baltimore Skyline that links back to a more industrial past.
My goal is to create photographs that inspire and cause the viewer to wonder. By blending light and shadow with the element of time, the simple camera can isolate and frame experiences and views not readily appreciated with the human eye. Ideally a photograph should tell a story of a moment or a generation. A photograph should leave the viewer wanting to know more and force them to create their own interpretation and end to the story.
I use various techniques to recreate, tailor and emphasize the scene as I experienced it when I captured the image. While many eschew post processing, I find it a natural extension of recreating the vision of the moment.
