‘Top o Willis Tower” Chicago. Shot from the ‘Ledge’ on the Sky deck. (shot about 5 years ago then reprocessed several times, in PS using painting, and numerous layers)
‘Street view-track” Chicago. 2013. Corner of Lake and Wabash. Casual shot with my Samsung Cell. On the way to work, where I teach at Illinois Institute of Art. Downtown Chicago)
Sean Costello shoots commercial portraits, architecture and fashion. His art shows a strong graphic sense in his work " Sanctuary "
To highlight the design of each church, I make high-contrast black andwhite photographs against a dark sky.
The low angles serve to emphasize a sense of awe in the viewer at the monumental elements ofthe structure.
My goal is not to coerce people into a newfound faith,
but to celebrate the genius of combining a near perfect set of
physical and aesthetic architectural elements, to create a beautiful structure that reflects individual beliefs and ideals.
