Arts: Concrete Porn ~ Buildings & Bridges Fine Art Photography Series Released by Artist Ted VanCleave

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“Concrete Porn ~ Buildings & Bridges” Fine Art Photography Series Released by Artist Ted VanCleave

Miami, Florida, September 17, 2014 – Internationally collected artist Ted VanCleave today released his new fine art photography series “Concrete Porn ~ Buildings & Bridges.” This new series is an homage to the often underappreciated building medium, concrete.

“My love of concrete architecture began when I visited the Pantheon in Rome. I was in awe of the beautiful, massive concrete dome which is still the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome, two thousand years after it was built.”

VanCleave’s new series provides an artist’s perspective of many notable yet overlooked concrete buildings and bridges in Los Angeles and Miami. Some of the images capture mundane utilitarian structures never meant to be appreciated as works of art. Other images included in the series are of beautifully elegant structures that pushed the limits of what we think of as concrete. Rarely painted, concrete exteriors stand up well to the elements and age beautifully.

“People often think of concrete buildings as being dark and foreboding but that’s rarely the case outside of parking structures. In this photo series I chose to create the images in a way that draws attention to the wood grain and other textures permanently embedded in the concrete during it’s construction, which I find intriguing and appealing. My favorite is the Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena, California. I consider it the Mona Lisa of concrete structures.”

Concrete Porn ~ Buildings and Bridges images are available as limited edition digital silver prints or as prints on aluminum through VanCleave’s web site.

About Ted VanCleave:
Ted VanCleave is a photographer, sculpture and painter. His work is collected internationally and he is represented by galleries from San Francisco to Switzerland. His highly stylized photographs, innovative sculptures and vibrant abstract paintings offer an exciting new approach to these popular media. Ted is best known for his Behind the Hollywood Sign photo series released in 2012
