Piece description from the artist

The Bradbury Building – Downtown Los Angeles (1893)

Known for its intricate interior ironwork and enclosed Victorian court, this Romanesque structure was completed in 1893 and is the city's oldest landmark building and the oldest commercial building in Los Angeles. Pictured here is the famous open cage elevators and the massive skylight, both of which were major architectural feats at the time.

The building's iconic setting has been immortalized in productions such as Double Indemnity, Blade Runner, The Twilight Zone, Perry Mason, Pushing Daisies, and was used as a primary location in Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814. It was designated a landmark in 1977.

About Ashland Thomas

Chicago, IL

Ashland grew up in Southeast Virginia surrounded by lush rural landscapes, great protected swamp lands, national & state parks, the Chesapeake Bay, the Eastern Shore, the breathtaking Skyline Drive & Blue Ridge Mountains, and the inlets & oceans of Virginia & North Carolina.

It was this constant variation in natural beauty that first drew his eye to the camera; that, and the constant joy of capturing life's candid moments on film. Although no particular subject is banned from the lens of Ashland's camera, it is landscapes, cityscapes, wildlife, and nature that truly captures his heart.

"There's always more to see, more to learn, more to be wowed about-I just hope you enjoy what I see in the world."

A constant staple on the likes of Instagram, Flickr, and Facebook, Ashland currently resides in Chicago, Illinois, and looks forward to many more years of development, collaboration, creativity, world travel, and art.
