Piece description from the artist
From my New York City Series. I was drawn to make this photo by the wonderful trees of Central Park. Even in their leafless state they obscure the surrounding city and bring calm to the urban sprawl. Noise cancelling noise. Captured using a tilt-shift technique with an oil painting-like texture.
A.D. Wheeler is a self-taught photographer who loves to push boundaries with his camera and his post-processing techniques. Andrew focuses primarily on landscape and what he coins, “abandonscape,” fine art photography. His term, “Abandonscape,” refers to the art of photographing abandoned buildings and sites of ruin and decay.
In 2012 Andrew's photo "Spinning Fire" won in the settings category for the Ron Howard and Canon Imaging's Project Imaginat10n. Andrew was also featured as a "Rising Star" on National PBS that syndicated across the US.
During the fair weather month's Andrew tours up and down the east coast with his multi-award winning "Abandonscape" prints on metal at various art shows and festivals.
