To the casual observer, Cleveland, Ohio, is just another small Midwestern town. But within the confines of our great city is a rich architectural and cultural history that is unique in and of itself. A combination of art deco and turn of the century styles that really bring our city to life.
Cleveland is a melting pot of cultures consisting of Italian, Polish, Jewish, Asian, African American, English, Irish, Czechoslovakian and a variety of others.
The idea behind my photography is to capture the essence of Cleveland. Its gritty, blue collar attitude with it's foundation based in turn of the century factories and now New Millennium glitz.
