“I have been painting and working as an artist locally for the last few years and wanted to make something that was a snapshot of my own experience here in the city, and that of many of my peers. I took a photo of the old Ackers building after a night downtown playing a show with my band after the bars had closed and the streets had cleared. I always feel very calm and relaxed when the rest of the world has gone to sleep and I wanted to capture that silence in what most of us know as a busy place. A stoically simple monument of the downtown experience.”
