For the 2012 Cincinnati Business Courier Book of Lists cover photo, I needed to create a high resolution photograph from the Carew Tower Observation Deck.

Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the Quadracci Pavilion received in the 2004 Outstanding Structure Award from the International Association for… Continue reading MAM – Milwaukee Art Museum
