Piece description from the artist
NBC Tower in Chicago, designed by famed architect Adrian Smith of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), is considered one of the finest reproductions of the Art Deco style and pays tribute to the NBC headquarters in NYC (the GE Building, aka 30 Rockefeller Plaza), and utilizes flying buttresses as a tribute to nearby landmark Tribune Tower. Completed in 1989, the 37-story building reaches a height of 627 feet and is the current broadcasting home of NBC5 Chicago, Judge Mathis, and The Steve Harvey Show among many others. Popular studio productions of the past include The Jerry Springer Show, The Jenny Jones Show, iVIllage Live, and The Steve Wilkos Show.
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.
