Piece description from the artist
The Wrigley Building, the former headquarters of the Wrigley gum company. Designed by Chicago firm Graham, Anderson, Probst & White using the shape of the Giralda Tower in Seville and incorporating French Renaissance details. The South Tower (shown) was completed in 1921, the North Tower in 1924. The South Tower is 27 stories, 425 feet tall, and it became a Chicago Landmark in 2012.
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.
