Artist's description:

This photograph is a digitally altered view of the lift bridges over the Calumet river with the Chicago Skyway bridge in the background. The Chicago Skyway was built to be a shortcut from State Street in Chicago to the steel mills on the Southeast border with Indiana. Transformation Is true of this region on a symbolic level as being my artistic media. The vibrant colors in my photos represent the vital role this industrial hub played in developing the Calumet region.

This digital art is from my series, Steel Giants Of The Heartland. The series celebrates the industrial area around 95th Street and the Calumet River, with its bridges, electrical towers, and train tracks. They are powerful icons of a recent era, an era of boundless dynamic energy. These outsized icons now loom here in this gigantic, eerie, outdoor museum. I was drawn to the steel-laced, elevated Skyway bridge that provides a unifying presence running throughout many of my photographs.

My photographs are printed on enhanced matte, archival paper. It is shipped well-protected in a sturdy cardboard tube. If you prefer a different size photo please use the contact link below. I can also provide prints on canvas.
