About the Book
At the end of the Summer of 2007, an interior architect I have worked with in the past referred a client, Key International, to me in an effort to assist them with their newest project, The Ivy.
The project they commissioned me for was to create twenty one original large images for the building. This project took me the better part of four months to shoot, then another month to narrow down the images to the final twenty one. The final product was twenty one 20 x 30, C – type, Metallic C – type and F – surface prints.
I have included these images as well as a collection of some of the images that I felt were near finalists for the final cut.
Ivan Apfel is a Fine Art and Wedding Photographer based in Miami, Florida. "I picked up my first camera when I was 15 and have had one in my hand ever since. I went on to study photography under Tom Fisher and Craig Stevens in Savannah, GA. It was during this time in the early 90's that I found my niche as a documentary photographer. I have carried this into my wedding photography. To this photographer, photo-journalism is capturing an image that represents an event. A documentary photographer captures a series of images that when put together reveals a story that no one single image could tell. To help insure I never loose my creative eye, I also work on several fine art projects each year. My fine art projects vary from abstract or obscure images of nature, everyday man made objects, abstract nudes and portraits.
