Harald Hoiland enjoys travel and landscape photography with a keen interest in capturing impressions of factory spaces and industrial buildings that have seen better days but nonetheless tell a story sometimes in a dramatic way. Harald processes and prints his work and exhibits his work at art fairs and markets in the Baltimore Washington area.
"I strive to achieve an image that conveys the true essence and splendor of the subject. I use the camera as my net to capture that essence. I use the computer only to translate the captured image into a reflection of the reality that I experienced when with the subject. Over manipulating the gossamer of the captured image will only detract from the splendor that was originally there."
