This was the first piece in my fire art collection. When
the Dept of Transportation decided to widen a road, Route 522. They sent
in a few fire companies to burn down seven houses that sat in a quarter
mile radius. I took three cameras, color and black & white. I shot seven
rolls. This was done before I had the computer equipment to do the pieces,
so they sat for five years until I had the idea of giving something to the
fire departments. I created six pieces of art from my photo shoot. For each
print bought, 50% of the proceeds will be donated to a local fire company.
The piece is a photo of an actual fighter
within a fire filled room. I added the fighter outside, that a
had from another picture. I also replaced the same fighter with
the silhouette for another piece. Lady Flame is the Adobe Illustrator
"logo". I always liked her and the day of the shoot,
I kept thinking about the flames trying to grab the firefighters
and bring them in.
