Piece description from the artist
In the stillness of the morning, you can almost hear the crack of the bat and the roar of the crowds echoing within the walls. Endless stories have been created and told inside the home of the Baltimore Orioles including the greats of Cal Ripken and Eddie Murray.
Completed in 1992, this iconic Major League Baseball ballpark has captured the hopes and dreams of seasons won and lost in Charm City. Centered near the downtown waterfront, the park is a defining element of the Baltimore skyline and a rally point for the city as a whole.
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.
