Arch Within Arch is my impression of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, Missouri. The 630' tall stainless steel catenary arch, like the Eiffel Tower, can be seen from almost any vantage point in the city. Yet to my eye, it looks somewhat out of place - modern minimalism arbitrarily plopped on the historic riverbank. Placing it within the brick arches of the subway station created a more harmonious framing that referenced both the old and the new city structures. When I visited, the arch was surrounded by construction projects. Access was limited to one winding sidewalk, although at first glance it seemed as though it was completely walled off by equipment and trenches. Seeing it through the hole in the wall best captured my feelings at the time.
The archival pigment print is 11" x 14" +/- printed by myself in my home studio. I selected Hahnemuhle Fine Art Photo Rag Pearl, a natural white, 100% cotton, buffered paper with no optical brighteners. The print is signed and dated.
