Fisher Building Hallway by Jim Hagan

August 2020 - Fisher Building Hallway

About the Image(s)

The Fisher Building is a landmark skyscraper in the heart of Detroit. The 30 story building was completed in 1928 by renowned architect Albert Kahn.

The building was designed in an art deco style with limestone, granite and several types of marble and contains the 2,089 seat Fisher Theatre which is a National Historic Landmark. The three story vaulted lobby is constructed
with 40 different kinds of marble and is highly regarded by architects.

I visited the Fisher Building 5 years ago on a Sunday and was dazzled by everything and especially the corridors. I photographed this portion of a corridor using my Sony digital camera, zoom lens at 15 mm, 1/8, f/9, ISO at
200 while using a tripod.

I cropped the right side of the original image both to eliminate a bright store window and also to place one of the light fixtures in a more prominent position. In Photoshop I straightened some of the distorted angles and also reduced the brightness of the light fixtures.

Jim, I love everything about this pic; with one tiny thing--the arch at the top crop. Do you have the entire arch? We'd love to see the original.   Posted: 08/01/2020 19:55:57
