Description The Minneapolis Stone Arch Bridge is a classic image of Minneapolis. It is the view of an era gone buy, mixed with the modern and new. The bridge originally built buy a great railroad baron, was used to create much of the wealth of the region by being the means by which grain could come to market in an area that is known as the breadbasket of the country.This image is by far one of my most popular, being used for book covers, marketing material for local corporations and for art on many fine homes.
Wayne Moran, Minneapolis Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement As a Minnesota based photographer and artist, Wayne focuses his skills and energies on landscapes, cityscapes, architectural, nature and portrait photography.
His best work comes from images first painted in his mind. He mulls over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture, he takes action. The result is images that deeply touch a person's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams.
His images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary. The images are used to communicate their shared vision and values. Book, magazine and calendar publishers have featured his images in their publications and on their covers. His photographs also grace and enhance the décor of many fine homes.
