A high contrast minimalist black and white photograph of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I was struck by how the backside of this building (a performing arts center), was so imposing and sort of ominous. Of course, it didn't help that the day was cold and overcast. Taken in the early afternoon, the sky was white. I wanted a dark feel, so I made the sky black and added the streaks. I also did a lot of digital dodging and burning to bring the focal point to the corners of the two tiers of the structure. I purposely did not make the vertical lines of the corners perfectly straight up and down to add to the dark feel.
