8 Responses to “Elgin Theater”

  1. I’ve enjoyed your elegant images of the Elgin; and many shots of the less elegant brick works, both here and on other photoblogs.
    Now, I think I’ve seen the Brick Works in quite a different way. By posting “The Office” right after “The Balconies of the Elgin”, you have pointed out, to me, the remarkable parallel and the drama in the lives of these two buildings.

    Here are two hushed and empty venues; the performers have packed up and gone, the audience has departed; in the stillness that follows, two locations await the excitement of preparation and of performance of what is to come next. Let’s hope the Brick Works is afforded the respect it deserves from its past performances, just as I’m sure the Elgin and the Winter Garden will.

    Is your recent work a strong political statement, Charles; or am I, once again, reading more than is intended into your excellent work?

  5. I agree with Dean…great job on the exposure. It does look like an HDR.

  7. Thanks guys. ::: ::: ::: ::: Hey Ron, I guess interpretation is up to the viewer. I will post more pics of this theater in the future but for now I’ll interrupt the regular programming to bring you the Hearn. ::: ::: ::: ::: Hey Dean, yes, a combination of three different exposures.
