These photographs were taken in the Wisconsin State Capitol building over a period of 18 months . The 20″ x 24″ prints were exhibited in the office of the Lt. Governor. The project was conceived to celebrate the elegant Beaux Arts architecture of the building and its extensive artisianship of wrought iron work, paintings, frescos, masonry and woodcarving. I used B&W medium format film for the project since the need for my “hands on” processing of the film, in some small way, pays tribute to the artists and craftspeople whose hands created the rich beauty of the stately building.
