Coleman’s Fish Market

Using a vignette approach to focus the viewers eyes on the historic character of this old building in Center Market, Wheeling, WV; I sought to build on the timeless strength it exemplifies. Its handmade red brick, sturdy pillars, and Romanesque style buttresses. Add in the moss covered slate roof, and the cupola with rooster weather vane; and you have a sense of timelessness that draws and attracts the viewer to a simpler age.
