Piece description from the artist
As viewed from Federal Hill adjacent to the Inner Harbor, the Baltimore Ravens M&T Bank Stadium is silhouetted by a winter sunset. In the quiet stillness of the evening you can almost hear the roar of the crowds cheering on their Superbowl winning hometown football team.
The M&T Bank Stadium officially opened in 1998. It is adjacent to the Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles and is one one of the most praised stadiums by fans.
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.
