Architecture & Sculpture

“To me, photography is an art of observation...
It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
— Elliott Erwitt

Shattering Silence

This series of nine photographs features the sculpture entitled Shattering Silence by James Ellwanger, taken at various times of day, at sunset, and at night. The iconic sculpture stands at the top of the hill overlooking the skyline of Des Moines, Iowa, next to the Iowa Supreme Court building.

The sculpture is in commemoration of the 170th anniversary of the landmark 1839 Iowa Territorial Supreme Court ruling that prohibited slave Ralph Montgomery from being extradited back to Missouri after he failed to raise the $550 he promised to pay to buy his freedom. The Iowa Art Council’s newsletter describes the art as a commemoration of “those moments when Iowa has been at the forefront of breaking the silence of inequality and commemorates those Iowans who refused to stand by silently when they saw injustice.”
